Caltrain announced this week it has completed safety improvements at three grade crossings in Redwood City, including at Whipple Avenue, Broadway and Main Street.
At Whipple Avenue, crews installed new signal cantilever and pedestrian gates, new sidewalks and ramps, and new pavement markings and striping.
At Broadway, new pedestrian gates have been installed along with new pavement markings.
At Main Street, new fencing, pedestrian gates, and pavement markings were added.
Crews began working in mid-February.
“Earlier this year, the Council adopted Vision Zero, an initiative to make our streets safer, and to increase mobility for all,” said Jeff Gee, Redwood City Councilman and Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board Director. “These improvements align with the Council’s vision to reduce traffic accidents, and to make our streets safer for everyone that wants to live, work and visit Redwood City. ”
Redwood City Mayor Ian Bain said the improvements will help make track crossing safer in an increasingly popular destination and transportation hub.
