The North Oceanside Double Track Project (CP East Brook to CP Shell/San Luis Rey River) is a planned rail improvement project between Oceanside Harbor and Pier View Way in Oceanside.
The future project is funded through preliminary engineering and environmental review only and is not yet funded for construction.
The project will eventually replace the aging single-track rail bridge over the San Luis Rey River with a modern, concrete double-track bridge and add a one-mile stretch of second main track that will join two existing double-track segments together. When complete, the project will create 10.3 miles of continuous double track along the Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Corridor.
SANDAG also is collaborating with the City of Oceanside to:
- Improve the bike and pedestrian undercrossing on the south side of the San Luis Rey River rail bridge
- Redesign the car and pedestrian undercrossing adjacent to the Oceanside Harbor
- Construct street median improvements at Surfrider Way to support a future Quiet Zone in Oceanside that would limit train horn noise
As part of the future project, two track crossovers will be installed along the existing railroad tracks between Surfrider Way and Pier View Way to allow trains to cross from one track to the other as they approach or leave Oceanside Transit Center.
This project is part of a multi-modal strategy to improve the movement of people and goods within the congested I-5 North Coast Corridor. The project also is a critical part of the 351-mile LOSSAN rail corridor and serves as a vital link for passenger and freight movements in the San Diego region.
