Trenching and tunneling options of the Palo Alto portion of the Caltrain railroad corridor is the main topic at an upcoming Community Roundtable Tuesday, March 6, 2018, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Palo Alto Art Center Auditorium at 1313 Newell Road, Palo Alto. The City of Palo Alto is hosting this roundtable as part of their Connecting Palo Alto efforts. Join them to hear a presentation and participate in a discussion about rail trenching and tunneling options.

Connecting Palo Alto is a community based process to address long-standing challenges associated with at-grade crossings on the Caltrain corridor that runs through the community of Palo Alto. This process will inform decisions affecting both community aesthetics and mobility choices for many future generations. Community feedback and collaboration will be a vital part of the decision making process. Engagement activities that inform, educate, gather input and connect citizens about potential rail design alternatives will help prepare the City of Palo Alto for the transit landscape of the future.
