Between the period of July 13 and August 3, Caltrain will be performing pothole work in Palo Alto that will require a partial closure of the W. Charleston Road railroad crossing to vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic. The temporary closure is required due to construction equipment and crews entering and exiting the Caltrain right-of-way at W. Charleston Road.
Work will take place on July 13 through August 3 between 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Directional signs will direct vehicle traffic to use either the eastbound lane or westbound lane of W. Charleston Road as a detour during construction. Only one lane will be closed at a time. The westbound lane will remain open when work requires closure of the eastbound lane. Once work in the eastbound lane is complete, crews will then close the eastbound lane and open the westbound lane for detour traffic Crosswalks on the north and south side of W. Charleston Road will be closed during construction.

During the closure, crews will install concrete foundations for Caltrain Electrification. Work will consist of excavation, placement of rebar, concrete fill, electrical grounding and the installation of foundations. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and the field team will work as quietly as possible.
