Coaster Closed for Bridge Work Saturday, Sunday
Crews will be working on the Santa Margarita Bridge
If you’re a regular on the Coaster, you’ll want to make different plans this weekend.
On Saturday and Sunday, the North County Transit District is closing the Coaster commuter rail service, Metrolink, Amtrak and BNSF freight trains in San Diego County.
Construction crews will be working on the Santa Margarita Bridge, a project slated to be complete in spring 2014.
They'll be adding a second main track to allow trains to meet and pass each other.
No replacement bus service will connect people to Coaster station stops, so riders should instead take Breeze Bus Route 101 or MTS connections throughout this weekend.
The rail will reopen for regularly scheduled service on Monday, Nov. 18.
