Overnight and Weekend Work April 21-22 Near Cardiff-by-the-Sea
As part of the San Elijo Lagoon Double Track Project, overnight and weekend work is planned for Saturday, April 21, from 12:30 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Monday, April 23, as construction crews continue to lay new track north of Chesterfield Avenue, and prepare recently laid track for eventual train service.
Additionally, crews will begin to remove the temporary work platform that was built across the San Elijo Lagoon's inlet to allow the construction of a new, double-tracked concrete rail bridge alongside the more than 60-year old wooden trestle.
The work will occur during an Absolute Work Window (AWW) where rail service will be temporarily suspended between Oceanside and San Diego, allowing crews to meet significant construction milestones and work unimpeded while all rail services are halted.
Nearby residents and businesses can expect intermittent day and nighttime noise and lights. Crews will work to minimize noise and other impacts to nearby residents. Your patience during construction is appreciated.
Access real-time traffic info through any of these resources: 511SD, Caltrans QuickMap, WAZE, or Google Maps. Please note: construction schedules are subject to change.

About the San Elijo Lagoon Double Track Project
The San Elijo Lagoon Double Track Project is a $72.8 million project that will add 1.5 miles of new double track from Cardiff-by-the-Sea to the southern border of the San Elijo Lagoon, replace the wooden trestle bridge over the San Elijo Lagoon with a modern concrete bridge, construct a new pedestrian undercrossing at the south end of the lagoon, and improve the signal and grade crossing at Chesterfield Drive. This project is part of Build NCC and will take approximately two years to complete.
