New platforms at Palo Alto are now open

May 28, 2008 at 6:42 pm Leave a comment

Caltrain today opened its new platforms (just south of the old platforms) at Palo Alto station. It is actually only half of it so that the station can remain open during construction.

There’s a new temporary pedestrian crossing south of the new platform. That pedestrian crossing was installed to keep the station fully ADA compliant. The existing tunnels are not ADA compliant because the ramps are too steep.

The second phase of the construction will finish the remainder of the platform and to upgrade the north tunnel to be ADA compliant (and hopefully less of that urine smell). Once the construction finishes the pedestrian crossing will be permanently removed.
