Burlingame Broadway Grade Separation Project

Sign Up for Project Updates

Background and Summary

Caltrain, in cooperation with the City of Burlingame, will separate the tracks from the road at Broadway in Burlingame. This will improve safety for motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and Caltrain railroad operations, as well as reduce local traffic congestion in Burlingame. The project will also construct a new elevated Broadway Station with new amenities that eliminates the current hold-out rule in which only one train is allowed at the station at a time.
