Caltrain plans to close a Palo Alto railroad crossing over two weekends in September for track maintenance work, the transportation agency announced this week.
The railroad crossing at Churchill Avenue will be closed from Friday, Sept. 23, at 11 p.m. until Monday, Sept. 26, at 4 a.m. and again from Friday, Sept. 30, at 8 p.m. until Monday, Oct. 3, at 4 a.m.
The reconstruction project includes new concrete, ballast, ties and rail, as well as extended concrete panels, new pavement and striping, to provide a smoother, safer crossing for vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists, according to Caltrain.
The tracks will be closed to all traffic, including cars, bicycles and pedestrians.
During the closure, Caltrain officials will establish detour signs for pedestrians and motorists to help with traffic flow, according to the agency. Residents may experience construction noise during this time, Caltrain officials warned.
