The final alternatives of the Ravenswood Avenue Railroad Crossing study will be presented to the City Council at their regular meeting Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017, at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers for their selection of a preferred alternative. The project team will present the proposed alternatives and impacts including construction and “shoofly” designs as well as feedback received to date. Please join us to hear about this important project and to provide your feedback to help the City Council select the preferred alternative. Once selected, the City staff will move forward with the environmental studies and design phase to advance this project into construction.

This project is evaluating the engineering feasibility of replacing the existing at-grade crossings of the Caltrain tracks by building grade separations of the roadways from the tracks at Ravenswood Avenue, Oak Grove Avenue and Glenwood Avenue, with priority on Ravenswood Avenue. This City Council meeting is a significant milestone for this project as it will determine the preferred alternative that will move forward into the environmental study and final design phase that will allow the City to construct a grade separation project to best address the community’s concerns and needs. Please visit the project webpage for more information about the project and information from previous public meetings.
