[ARCHIVED] Caltrain Announcement: Watkins Avenue Grade Crossing Improvement


 Watkins Avenue Grade Crossing Improvement Project in Town of Atherton 


Caltrain, in cooperation with the Town of Atherton, will begin a project to improve the safety at Watkins Avenue. These improvements will increase safety for vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists. Their primary contractor completing the work is Graniterock.
