Caltrain will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at San Mateo City Hall (Room C), 330 W. 20th Avenue in San Mateo, regarding a future track maintenance area project that will be installed inside the Caltrain right of way between 9th and 14th Avenues in San Mateo. The meeting will include background information, a presentation on the future project, and time for questions and answers.
Caltrain previously had a storage area (also called a set-out track) within San Mateo but it was recently removed due to the 25th Avenue Grade Separation project. A set-out track creates a storage space for train maintenance equipment. It typically includes a track approximately 1000’ in length and an access road. Equipment would be stored during the day shift or night shift on an as needed basis. The set-out track would likely be used approximately 1 to 2 days per week by maintenance crews.
To date, the work that has occurred at the potential set-out track area consists of distributing soil at the location. In the near future, crews also need to install a drainage ditch to prevent any excess runoff and pooling caused by the rain. In order to make the location a functional set-out track area, additional installation work would be needed. A construction contract for additional installation work has not been issued and no installation work is expected for several months. Prior to the start of any installation work, Caltrain will communicate with residents, businesses and other interested members of the public to discuss the project in more detail.
