SAN BRUNO -- A Caltrain construction crew working on a $155 million project in San Bruno struck a gas main Sunday night, halting Caltrain service while crews worked to repair the damage.

The incident occurred about 9:15 p.m. on San Bruno Avenue, according to a Caltrain spokeswoman. Caltrain service in both directions was stopped, and BART and SamTrans were providing alternatives.

There is no indication the broken gas main is creating other problems in the area. There have been no injuries or evacuations, according to Caltrain.

The Caltrain project is underway to elevate train tracks above three streets in San Bruno: San Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues. Caltrain is taking the tracks above street level to improve traffic and safety in the area, and hopes to finish the project next spring.
