Amtrak closures for this weekend

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – You might need to find another way to travel this weekend since the Amtrak rail will be shut down for maintenance.

All services between Oceanside and San Diego will be shut down for improvements. The shutdown started at midnight Saturday morning and it will continue until Monday at 5-am. The closure will allow crews to work on five-rail improvement projects… including upgrades to the Carlsbad and Encinitas stations.

Crews will also be working on the San Diego bridge and the Morena double track project.

Sandag officials say these upgrades will expand capacity and improve traffic flow
