SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (CNS) — Orange County Transportation Authority officials announced Monday that work has been completed on the train tracks in San Clemente, which will allow for weekend rail service to resume Feb. 4.
The service from Irvine and Oceanside was suspended Sept. 30 when officials noticed movement of the tracks and the hillside.
“Even with the recent heavy rain and high tides, our approach to this project has proven effective in keeping the track from moving and we’re pleased to announce that passenger service can safely resume on weekends,” OCTA Chairman Gene Hernandez said.
Work continues on the tracks, so there will be no rail service during weekdays. The work is expected to be done by the end of March.
