Trains have started traveling on new elevated tracks through San Bruno as part of a $147 million grade separation project, according to Caltrain officials.
Trains have been traveling on temporary tracks during construction of a new grade separation in downtown.
Now that they are running on the elevated tracks, the temporary tracks and crossings will be demolished, causing periodic street closures during the next week, according to Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn.
Passengers will continue to use the temporary station at 297 Huntington Ave. until the project’s completion, which is expected by the end of the year.
The project will include a new station on the elevated platform between San Bruno and San Mateo avenues, three pedestrian underpasses, and grade separations at San Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues.
The project will also include 201 parking spaces and a “kiss and ride” drop-off site, along with landscaping, improvements to Posy Park and an archway over San Bruno Avenue.
The project broke ground in November 2010.
