Why are the closures needed?
Tracks will be closed to allow for construction crews to perform work on multiple improvement projects. This includes adding another track and extending the platform at the Oceanside Transit Center, constructing a second rail track in San Diego County, improving railroad bridges over the San Diego River and Los Peñasquitos Lagoon, and more. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve rail service in Southern California.
