Watkins Avenue Closure

From 8 p.m. on November 3 to 6 a.m. on November 4, Caltrain will be performing foundation installation work which will require the temporary closure of the Watkins Avenue railroad crossing. Illuminated and directional signs will direct vehicle traffic to use detour routes during construction. A detour map is provided below.

Work will consist of excavation, placement of rebar, concrete fill, electrical grounding and the installation of foundations. Crews will utilize on-track equipment that requires the temporary closure of the above railroad crossing. To mitigate noise and other impacts during night and weekend activities, the field team will utilize acoustical noise barrier blankets and will position lights away from residential and business areas. If you have questions or comments about the upcoming work, please call our dedicated Project Hotline at 650.399.9659 or email Please visit to sign-up for weekly construction updates. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
