Because of construction in San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano, Metrolink service on three consecutive Saturdays will be disrupted in those towns.
This Saturday and Oct. 5, the Metrolink will stop service at San Juan Capistrano. On Oct. 12, the train’s last stop will be in Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo, according to an announcement from the city of San Juan Capistrano.
“There will be no alternate bus or transportation services provided on these days,” according to the city of San Juan. The adjustments were needed “to accommodate work being performed at road crossings in the San Clemente area.”
According to the city of San Clemente, city officials are working with aa Metrolink contractor to improve pedestrian safety at seven railroad crossings near the San Clemente Beach Trail.
The $4.5 million construction project is expected to finish up by year's end.
Safety enhancements include wider paved areas, new fencing, additional crossing gate arms, improved signs and the installation of electrical work for the audible warning system, according to a notice from the city of San Clemente.
