Rosendin Electric has started work on the new San Bruno Grade Separation project. The $4 million electrical contract is part of a $77.7 million construction contract awarded to Granite Construction to elevate the Caltrain rail tracks at key intersections in San Bruno.
Rosendin Electric has been subcontracted to install all the electrical work.
The first phase of the project includes supporting “shoofly” temporary tracks to re-route trains during construction, which will require building a temporary station platform during construction and modifying traffic signals in the area, and ultimately installing permanent signal lights.
Over the next 12 months Rosendin will be responsible for installing all the electricity for the project, including relocating utility boxes, wiring the new station platform, and installing area streetlights.
The San Bruno Grade Separation project will eventually elevate the train tracks above San Bruno, San Mateo, and Angus avenues in San Bruno. A new elevated train station between San Bruno and San Mateo avenues will replace the current train station, and the project includes three pedestrian underpasses, as well as a new parking lot with 191 parking spaces.
The overall project is expected to be completed by 2012.
