Temporary changes to rail service in North County

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CNS) - Rail service along San Diego's North County coastline will be disrupted by construction work over the first three weekends of March, according to the North County Transit District.

On the weekends of March 1-2, and March 8-9, the NCTD's Coaster trains will run, but there will be no San Diego County stops for Amtrak or the Metrolink.

On the weekend of March 15-16, Coaster, Amtrak and Metrolink service will all be shut down in San Diego County. The NCTD urged passengers to plan ahead and use alternate forms of transportation on those dates.

The agency will not offer replacement bus service to Coaster stops on March 15-16, but will add an additional bus along its Route 101 to accommodate heavier passenger loads.

Rail work is scheduled at the Santa Margarita Bridge at Camp Pendleton, the Coast Boulevard crossing in Del Mar, the San Dieguito River Bridge and the area between Sorrento Valley and Miramar roads, according to the NCTD.
