Electrification of Caltrain

Electrification of Caltrain

The CalMod is a $1.9 billion project that will electrify the main line of the U.S. commuter railroad Caltrain, which serves cities in the San Francisco Peninsula and Silicon Valley, as well as transition from its current diesel-electric locomotive powered trains to electric multiple units (EMU). According to Caltrain, electrification of the tracks will allow it to improve service times via faster acceleration and shorter headways, reduce air pollution and noise, and facilitate a future railway tunnel into downtown San Francisco's Transbay Transit Center.  While working on this project my main duties include but are not limited to, to work on the OCS team to develop various spread sheets to communicate construction operations that may go into future planning and will affect the impact to the time and cost of the project..  To review weekly construction reports and input them into a data base that will be used for future project planning and track the pole installment and different attachments that allow for train system operation.
