Amtrak closing dates change

OCEANSIDE — 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:
For March 8 and March 9,
— 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  and March 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
