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

    April 12-14, 2019

    The tracks between Irvine and San Diego will be closed due to construction projects from 10 p.m. on Friday through 1 a.m. on Monday on the dates listed above. On Saturday and Sunday, 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.
