Peninsula: Caltrain erects wall to lessen construction noise

Caltrain began construction of a sound wall along Rollins Road this week from Corbitt Drive to Toyon Drive. Construction is expected to last up to three weeks, with daytime pile driving to construct the sound wall’s foundation from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. The construction is part of the ongoing auxiliary lane project on U.S. Highway 101.

The auxiliary lane will stretch between the Millbrae Avenue exit and Third Avenue in San Mateo and is expected to be completed in Spring 2011.

Caltrain is also rebuilding its railroad crossings in San Bruno at Scott Street between Herman Street and Montgomery Avenue during the weekends of July 27 and Aug. 3.

Recycled-water project nets $2.9M grant from state board

The city’s recycled-water project won a $2.9 million grant from the California State Water Resources Control Board.

The money will be used to install more recycled-water pipelines on the east side of Highway 101, where some water is already flowing to corporate customers.

The grant covers approximately 25 percent of the construction costs associated with adding pipes along the Bayfront and in the Seaport area, according to Community Development Director Peter Ingram.

‘Tip-a-Cop’ event scheduled for this week at Applebee’s

The annual “Tip-a-Cop” fundraiser takes place Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. at Applebee’s, located at 1135 Veterans Blvd.

During the event, staff from the Redwood City Police Department will wait tables, and any tips they receive will go to Special Olympics Northern California.

The money helps provide year-round training to children and adults with developmental disabilities. For more information, call (650) 780-7102.
