New Caltrain Station Construction Arrives
By Austin Walsh
Years of planning and coordinating culminated with a few public acknowledgments lasting just a little longer than the time Caltrain doors stay open during a stop at the South San Francisco station.
But following state, regional and city officials digging their ceremonial shovels into loose dirt during a groundbreaking, Monday, Nov. 6, construction on the new South City station is now on track.
While the crowd’s applause was dwarfed by nearby highway traffic roar and periodic train horn blasts, the enthusiasm and anticipation for the new station intended to better connect to the growing downtown could not be overshadowed.
