Crews plan to connect and activate a second rail line next to the one currently running through Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Work hours and suspended service are scheduled from just after midnight on Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday. Nearby residents can expect occasional noise, lights and dust from the work site.
The $72.8 million project involves adding 1 1/2 miles of double track from Cardiff-by-the-Sea to the southern region of the San Elijo Lagoon, as well as replacing a wooden trestle bridge over the lagoon and building a new pedestrian bridge near the lagoon, according to SANDAG.
The work is part of Build NCC (North Coast Corridor), a 40-year, $700 million program to repair and expand transportation infrastructure around San Diego County. All projects in the Build NCC program — including the extension of carpool lanes, bridge replacement and new bike and pedestrian trails — are expected to be completed by 2021.
