Track work to affect Metrolink’s OC and IE-OC service


LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Regular Metrolink service will only be available
as far south as the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Metrolink Station on the Orange
County and Inland Empire-Orange County lines this weekend, as well as the
weekends of Feb. 9-10, March 2-3 and March 9-10, due to scheduled maintenance
work, the commuter rail service announced today.
The tracks between the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo and Oceanside
stations will be closed.

ensure safety and reliability of service,” according to a Metrolink statement,
