SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Work on tracks in Encinitas will shut down rail service along the North County coastline this weekend, according to the San Diego Association of Governments and North County Transit District.
SANDAG said the crews will install new drainage culverts within the railroad right-of-way just north of Chesterfield Drive from 12:30 a.m. Saturday to 4 a.m. Monday. They will also work on bridge support columns.
As a result, Amtrak trains will not come farther south than Oceanside beginning tonight. Alternate bus connections will be provided, according to Amtrak.
The NCTD's Coaster train will be suspended over the weekend. The agency said passengers can ride the Route 101 bus or catch a Metropolitan Transit System bus.
