Caltrain and government officials celebrated the completion of a yearlong, $35 million improvement project for the Palo Alto and California Avenue train stations in Palo Alto today.
The project targeted a range of improvements at both stations, such as rail safety, track capacity and accessibility. The stations are now fully compliant with standards set by the American with Disabilities Act, according to Caltrain.
Stanford University's Cantor Arts Center displayed a replica of the historic Golden Spike at a 10:15 a.m. ceremony at the California Avenue train station in Palo Alto.
Local officials such as Santa Clara County Supervisor Liz Kniss and Palo Alto Mayor Peter Drekmeier attended.
