Three South Bay trolley stations closed this weekend for upgrades

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Three San Diego Trolley stations in the South Bay will be closed for the weekend as part of a project to overhaul the Blue Line, according to the Metropolitan Transit System.

The stations at San Ysidro, Beyer Boulevard and Iris Avenue will close at 9 p.m. Friday night, and regular service will resume on Monday morning, according to MTS.

During the closure, a shuttle bus will take passengers between stations. The busses will run every 8-15 minutes.

The closures are part of a larger $620 million project to improve the Blue and Orange lines. Improvements include raising platforms, replacing rail and overhead wiring, upgrading switching and signaling and adding 57 new low-floor trolleys.
