Metrolink is currently conducting system improvements along a portion of the railroad tracks between Dana Point and San Clemente, according to the city.

Crews were scheduled to conduct the improvements to the tracks adjacent to Beach Road in Dana Point and near North El Camino Real between Camino San Clemente and Avenida Estacion in San Clemente, beginning on Tuesday, Feb. 4.

The work will be done on the weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., the city noted. The Metrolink crews are expected complete the work by Friday, Feb. 14.

During this improvement work, there are likely to be such impacts as noise from the equipment backup alarms and heavy machinery; noise, vibration and dust from the construction-related activities; and lights from the light towers.

While the work area is taking place next to a designated Quiet Zone, per the Federal Railroad Administration’s safety regulations, it’s likely that trains will be required to blow their horns because of the crews working on or near the tracks.
