SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
San Clemente’s two Metrolink train stations will be closed for service the next three Saturdays for work on construction at the seven pedestrian train crossings in the city. The work will also limit access to certain parts of the Beach Trail.
Enhancements to the crossings would widen paved areas, new fencing, additional crossing gate arms, improved signs and the installation of electrical work for the audible warning system, according to an Orange County Transportation Authority release.
Service to the two San Clemente stations will be available during the week and on Sundays, OCTA spokesman Joel Zlotnick said. Those needing to use the train on Saturdays are directed use the stations in Laguna Niguel or San Juan Capistrano.
