NCTD notes work schedule for COASTER route

Written by 

California's North County Transit District (NCTD) on Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013 specified track work dates for its Coastal Rail Line, used by its COASTER regional rail service, and part of the LOSSAN rail line linking San Diego and Los Angeles, which includes Amtrak service.

"This work is part of a larger crosstie replacement project begun in October which will result in the installation of approximately 9,800 new railroad crossties from the Orange County line to Sea World Drive in San Diego," NCTD said.

Work is scheduled for nighttime hours "so as to not interrupt regular COASTER service," NCTD said.

Crews will be located in Encinas, Calif., Dec. 19 (today) through the 21st, and again on Jan. 6 and 7, 2014; in Del Mar, Jan. 2-4; and in South Carlbad, Jan. 8-9.

NCTD's COASTER service runs from San Diego's Santa Fe Depot to the Oceanside Transit Center, connecting there with buses and NCTD's SPRINTER diesel light rail transit (DLRT) service.
