North County Transit District will be replacing railroad ties on the
coastal rail corridor – the tracks on which the COASTER travels – from now through November 24, 2013. Approximately 9,800 railroad crossties from the
San Diego County line to Sea World Drive in San Diego will be replaced
through this project. NCTD’s crosstie replacement will occur at night to avoid
interruption of regular COASTER service. This work will not impact train
Workers will use heavy machinery to replace the crossties, resulting in noise in the project area. This project is part of normal railroad maintenance, which includes periodically replacing aging ties before the ties fail to keep the rail property aligned.
The night work will be conducted from approximately 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. Nov. 15-18 in Encinitas from East G St. to Birmingham Dr.
