Mission Avenue Improvement Project
Crosstie Replacement Project
November through December 2013
NCTD will be replacing railroad ties on the coastal rail corridor – the tracks on which the COASTER travels – during November and December. 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 schedules.
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. with the anticipated scheduled:
- Nov. 25 to Dec. 13 – San Diego (Miramar Road to Sea World Drive)
- Dec. 16 to 18 – Del Mar
- Dec. 19 to 21 – Encinitas
- Jan. 2 to 3 – Encinitas
- Jan. 6 to 9 – Area immediately south of Orange County
