Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project
Balfour Beatty and Stadler U.S. Inc., the Peninsula Corridor Electrification Project’s principal contractors, have provided Caltrain with the flexibility needed to survive a deferred decision on a crucial federal grant imposed by the USDOT under pressure from California’s Republican delegation.
Caltrain has warned that the viability of its project to electrify the 52-mile San Jose-San Francisco corridor may be in jeopardy after newly appointed United States Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao ordered the Federal Transit Administration to defer federal funding.
