Hillsdale Station to close for up to six months starting May 16

in Community/Featured/Headline

Caltrain Hillsdale Station will close on May 16 for up to six months as part of the 25th Avenue Grade Separation Project.

The project will make way for a new elevated Hillsdale Station located at E. 28th Avenue. The station will have additional shelters, new landscaping, and a center-boarding platform for riders to access both north and southbound trains. A new east-west connection at 28th Avenue will also be built.

During the closure, Caltrain will provide free bus/shuttle connections between Hillsdale and Belmont stations to help riders access Caltrain.

On Thursday at noon, the public is invited to a live online presentation about the project on Caltrain’s YouTube page. The link will be made available 10 minutes before the event begins.

The $180 million project will raise tracks and lower the road at 25th avenue, reducing horn noise and improving traffic flow, and there will be new east-west connections at both 28th and 31st avenues. Construction began in 2017 and is expected to finalize in Spring 2021, according to the project information page.
