Charleston Road Grade Crossing

Caltrain will be conducting track maintenance work over two consecutive weekends at the Charleston Road Grade Crossing in Palo Alto. The maintenance work will include all new ballast, concrete ties, rail and grade crossing panels on both tracks to maintain their state of good repair. New pavement and striping will also be included as a part of the maintenance work. These elements will provide a smoother, safer crossing for vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists. 

In order for this work to occur we will need to close the grade crossing down for approximately 56 hour window. This closure would not allow vehicular, bicycle or pedestrian traffic to cross the tracks during this outage. We have identified the following times as to when these closures would take place.

  • Closure 1 – April 13, 2018 at 8:00pm until April 16, at 4:00am
  • Closure 2 – April 20, 2018 at 8:00pm until April 23, at 4:00am
