A project to improve safety at 15 grade crossings along the Caltrain line was completed ahead of schedule, the transit agency announced this week.
The project began in June 2018 and was expected to be finished by March of this year. It included repainting, pouring new concrete, gluing down new tactile markers, installing street medians, improving sidewalks, installing new signage and removing outdated materials, according to Caltrain.
The project cost $3.5 million, with $1.06 million coming from the Federal Rail Administration and $377,000 from State Proposition 1B funds. The remainder of the funding came from Caltrain’s capital budget, according to the transit agency.
