Interruptions in rail service this weekend due to construction

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - For the second weekend in a row, rail service downtown and along the North County coastline will be interrupted to accommodate construction crews.

The San Diego trolley will not run between the Old Town Transit Center and City College until Monday morning. Workers are replacing tracks, raising platforms and installing new overhead electrical wires.

Signs with information on alternate bus service are posted at all of the affected stations.

The work will also result in the closure of Broadway between Kettner Boulevard and Pacific Highway; and Kettner Boulevard between Broadway and A Street.

In the North County, a second track is being installed to increase the number of trains that can run and improve safety.

Amtrak service will be interrupted from Irvine to San Diego, with passengers being placed on buses.

Coaster train service operated by the North County Transit District is not expected to be impacted, but the Metrolink will not offer trains to Oceanside.
