25th Avenue just west of the San Mateo County Fairgrounds, and is scheduled to run every day from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. between Thursday and March 16, and again from March 19 to March 23, according to Caltrain.

Throughout the project, at least one lane of 25th Avenue will remain open at the crossing, and crews will direct traffic and pedestrians around the construction area, according to Caltrain.

The rebuilding is part of a two-year project to improve 25 grade crossings in San Mateo County by clearly marking pedestrian crossings with fencing, warning signals and gates.

The project also provides new sidewalks and center medians to prevent drivers from going around the crossing gates, according to Caltrain.
