Caltrain will perform routine track maintenance at several locations next week, including the town of Atherton. To avoid train delays the work will take place from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10 to Monday, Feb. 11, said a Caltrain spokeswoman.
Crews will weld and grind switches, and replace worn asphalt, rails, ties and ballast along the tracks. Neighbors may hear construction noise from equipment and heavy machinery; however, crews will work as quietly as possible, said spokeswoman Ellen Glover.
