    Upcoming Improvements

    The LOSSAN rail corridor stretches 351 miles from San Diego to San Luis Obispo, with the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, freight, commuter and long-distance trains sharing the tracks. Ongoing construction projects keep the infrastructure in top condition and contribute to overall improvements in rail travel along the corridor. Larger projects require tracks or stations to be closed so crews can perform necessary work, which temporarily affects train service.

    We understand that this may be an inconvenience to riders, and would like to thank you for your patience.

     


    Pacific Surfliner Service Affected between Irvine and San Diego

    October 12-14 and 19-21, 2018

    The tracks between Irvine and San Diego will be closed due to construction projects from 10 p.m. on Friday, October 12 through 1 a.m. on Monday, October 15, as well as from 10 p.m. on Friday, October 19 through 1 a.m. on Monday, October 22. On Saturday and Sunday, October 13-14 and 20-21, Amtrak will operate regularly scheduled Pacific Surfliner service as far south as Irvine, with a bus bridge to/from San Diego.

    The closure is required so crews can perform work on multiple construction projects, including adding double track and improving rail crossings. During the closure, refer to our Twitter page for service updates. Passengers can also call 800-USA-RAIL, use the Amtrak App, or check the train tracker map.

    Temporary Station Closure – Van Nuys

    November 3-4 and December 8-9, 2018

    Pacific Surfliner and Coast Starlight trains will not stop in Van Nuys on November 3 and 4, as well as December 8 and 9, due to scheduled weekend construction work at the station.

    During these upcoming closures at the Van Nuys Station, crews will construct a center platform to meet increasing rail traffic demands, as well as a grade separated pedestrian crossing for enhanced safety and accessibility near the tracks. These improvements will help to improve travel times and on-time performance for trains that travel through the area. Learn more.
