Oceanside CA – The construction work and related rail closure scheduled for this weekend, March 1 – 2 has been postponed. All rail service in San Diego County will operate on normal schedules. The construction work would have suspended Amtrak and Metrolink service in the county. The threat of storms and lightning prompted authorities to cancel the work this weekend returning to all rail service to normal operations. The other two March construction-related service suspensions are still in effect. Those will take place on March 8-9 and March 15-16 as follows:
- Regular COASTER service
- No Amtrak service – including the six select Amtrak ‘Rail 2 Rail’ trains that serve all eight COASTER stations
- No Metrolink service
March 15 -16
- No COASTER service
- No Amtrak, Metrolink or BNSF freight service
The rail will re-open for regularly scheduled COASTER and all other rail service in time for the morning commute on Monday, March 17. For additional information, please visit GoNCTD.com. Amtrak information is available at Amtrak.com.
