Quint St closure is a-comin'

Starting September 28, 2015 (date subject to change), Caltrain will begin construction on the Quint Street Bridge Replacement Project. The project consists of replacing the 100-year old Quint Street Bridge with a new berm. The current bridge is deemed structurally deficient, does not meet existing seismic safety standards and must be replaced to ensure the safety of community members and Caltrain passengers. The new berm will be designed to allow for a potential Caltrain station to be located at Oakdale Avenue in the future. Work to replace the bridge with a new berm is scheduled to start in October 2015 and is expected to last 6 months.

Closure of Quint Street between Jerrold Avenue and Oakdale Avenue is expected to begin on September 28, 2015 (or after). The San Francisco County Transportation Authority’s Quint-Jerrold Connector Road project will follow the berm construction. The planned connector road will link Quint Street, just north of Oakdale Avenue, to Jerrold Avenue via a new road along the west side of the Caltrain tracks. More information regarding the Quint-Jerrold Connector Road project can be found at www.sfcta.org/quint.

During the closure, Caltrain will establish traffic rerouting signs for pedestrians and motorists to help with traffic flow. Please see traffic rerouting map below for details. The majority of the construction work will take place during weekdays. However, in order to maintain regular train service, some activities must be conducted during nights or weekends, outside of normal train service hours. Caltrain will notify neighbors in advance of periods of night and weekend work. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
