Ravenswood Avenue railroad crossing project

This project evaluates 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, Glenwood Avenue and Encinal Avenue, with priority on Ravenswood Avenue.

Menlo Park Caltrain

Current status

A consultant team has been hired to perform the project study report for the Caltrain tracks crossing and a series of three community meetings will be held and up to seven commission and City Council presentations will be made.

Currently, proposals for the future Caltrain-high speed rail blended system are limited to two- or three-tracks within Menlo Park. The City Council's current position is to support only a two-track alignment through Menlo Park. The full position is outlined in the City's rail policy, as can be found on the rail project information page. This study will consider the work being performed for California high speed rail and Caltrain modernization projects, but is independent of these efforts.
