SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A trolley construction project set to start Saturday is expected to delay service by about 30 minutes.
Crews will be working to replace tracks between the Encanto/62nd Street and 47th Street stations Saturday and Sunday, according to San Diego Metropolitan Transit System officials.
Bus service will be provided around the affected section of track to the Euclid Transit Center.
Transit officials urged Orange Line riders who normally pass through the Encanto/62nd Street and the 47th Street trolley stations to allow for extra travel time.
Westbound passengers will have to get off the trolley at the Encanto/62nd Street stop and board the bus marked "Trolley Bridge." The bus will stop at the Euclid Transit Center for transfers, then continue to the Encanto/62nd Street stop to transfer back to the trolley.
Eastbound riders will have to get off at the 47th Street stop then board the "Trolley Bridge" bus, which will stop at the Euclid Transit Center before continuing to the Encanto/62nd Street stop where passengers can transfer back to the trolley.
The track replacement is part of a $620 million Trolley Renewal project to rebuild the Orange and Blue Line stations, MTS said. At the end of the three-year project new low-floor cars will operate throughout the MTS network and stations will include new shelters and signage.
MTS has offered a subscription texting service to enable passengers to stay current on delays and closures. To subscribe, text STATIONS to 46687, or riders can call the Trolley Renewal Hotline at (619) 557-4533.
