Caltrain staff will provide information about upcoming construction activities that will be occurring in Menlo Park.

Upcoming work includes tree pruning/removal, utility relocation and signal/communication equipment inspection. After pre-construction activities occur, crews will begin work on the foundations for the overhead contact system poles.
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 long-term environmental impacts by reducing noise, improving regional air quality and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Caltrain electrification is scheduled to be operational by 2022.
