Project Overview

The project added 1.8 miles of passing siding railroad track between the Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo Metrolink Station and Trabuco Creek in San Juan Capistrano. The passing siding track runs adjacent to the existing track, which allows trains traveling in opposite direction to pass each other without stopping. The project reduces delays, increases safety and provides more reliable rail service.
