San Mateo County agency OKs funds for Caltrain grade separation project

The San Mateo County Transportation Authority's board last week allocated $65.3 million toward Caltrain's Hillsdale grade separation and station relocation project.

The city of San Mateo, Calif., will be responsible for the remaining costs of the $165.3 million project, Caltrain spokeswoman Jayme Ackermann said in an email.

The project involves elevating Caltrain tracks between Hillsdale Boulevard and Highway 92 in San Mateo, as well as elevating the Hillsdale station and moving it north.

The project is expected to improve traffic flow ahead of Caltrain's electrification project, which will allow more trains to run.
