Two-day Coaster service shutdown set

OCEANSIDE — On Nov. 16 and Nov. 17, North County Transit District’sCoaster commuter rail service, Metrolink, Amtrak, and BNSF freight trains will not be operating in San Diego County.

Customers are urged to plan in advance to take other forms of transit those days because there will be no replacement bus service connecting to Coaster station stops. Passengers who normally use the Coaster should take Breeze Route 101 or MTS connections during this scheduled service suspension.

During the weekend, the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) will advance necessary construction work on the Santa Margarita Bridge in order to improve rider experience. This project is expected to be completed in spring 2014.The rail will reopen for regularly scheduled Coaster and other rail service in time for the morning commute Nov. 18.
