Please join Caltrain staff for a community meeting about Caltrain electrification. Staff will provide an update about the construction activities that will be occurring in Menlo Park.
In March 2018, crews began working on tree pruning/removal, utility relocation, and foundation installation. Over the next few months, crews will continue foundation installation and begin the installation of poles along the rail corridor in Menlo Park. The meeting will provide an opportunity for residents to learn more about the project, including the scope and schedule of upcoming construction activities. Please visit the CalMod webpage to sign-up for weekly construction updates.
Caltrain electrification is a key component of the Caltrain Modernization Program that will electrify the Caltrain Corridor from San Francisco’s 4th and King Station to approximately the Tamien Station in San Jose and replace diesel-hauled trains with Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains.
Caltrain electrification will improve Caltrain system performance, enable more frequent and/or faster train service, and reduce longterm environmental impacts by reducing noise, improving regional air quality and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Caltrain electrification is scheduled to be operational by 2022. For more information about the Caltrain Electrification project and construction, visit the CalMod webpage.
