Railroad work to impact Capitol Corridor schedules

For all of our local Capitol Corridor commuters and other riders, we wanted to pass along this info from today's Vacaville Reporter and this Capitol Corridor link for more info:
Union Pacific Railroad will begin Phase 1 of a two-phase track infrastructure project, which will affect Capitol Corridor service.

Starting Monday (Jan. 18), Phase I involves upgrading tracks between Capitol Corridor's Suisun/Fairfield and Sacramento stations.

To accommodate work crews, from Monday through Feb. 14, Capitol Corridor will run on a modified schedule and a bus bridge from Sacramento to Suisun will be in effect for some late-morning and mid-day trains.

This work is designed to keep the railroad in good condition so trains can operate safely and reliably.

Four trains will be suspended during the construction period to give Union Pacific extra time to work. Eastbound trains No. 534 and No. 746 and Westbound trains No. 533 and No. 745 will not operate Monday to Feb. 14.

Some changes to connecting motorcoach bus service will also occur as a result of the work.

Temporary train schedules are available at staffed stations or online at Passengers may also call (877) 974-3322 for assistance.
