Public Open House to be held in Del Mar on San Dieguito Double Track and Special Events Platform Project
The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and North County Transit District (NCTD) will hold a public information open house on Wednesday, Oct. 30, from 6-8 p.m. to learn more about the San Dieguito Double Track and Special Events Platform Project.
Although not yet funded for construction, project team members will discuss and answer questions about the project’s track, bridge, and special events platform preferred alternative that will be carried forward for the next phase of engineering and environmental study.
The project will construct a one-mile stretch of second main track from Solana Beach into Del Mar, replace the nearly 100-year-old wooden trestle rail bridge over the San Dieguito River with a modern, concrete double-track bridge, and add a new special events rail platform on the west side of the fairgrounds. SANDAG is also working to incorporate a safe and legal public undercrossing under the south end of the rail bridge.
The project is part of the Interstate 5 North Coast Corridor Program, a comprehensive package of highway, rail and transit, and coastal access improvements, which spans 27 miles from Oceanside to La Jolla.
