Oceanside CA— The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) will begin construction at the Oceanside Transit Center in June 2016.
The project will improve the efficiency and on-time performance of the station’s transit operations by adding a third track, which allows for an additional train to move through the station when two trains are boarding passengers.
Other project improvements include constructing a new boarding platform to the south, extending an existing platform to the north to accommodate a ten-car train, adding new crossovers and turnouts to enhance rail operations, and modernizing the station’s amenities with new shelters, directional lighting, seating, and electronic signs displaying real-time arrivals and departures. Construction is expected to be complete in late 2017.
Prior to construction, the project team will host a series of Construction Info Sessions at the station so transit users and neighbors can learn more about the project, what to expect during construction, and sign up to receive project updates.
