Union Pacific track crews will return on March 8th to finish the tie renewal project between Richmond and Oakland. During this time period, Capitol Corridor will continue to operate all trains on our full, regular schedule published October 26, 2009.
Since Union Pacific work crews will be occupying one of the main tracks between Richmond and Oakland to complete the tie renewal project, some midday Capitol Corridor trains may be subject to delays of approximately 20-30 minutes as they move through the work area.
The Capitol Corridor trains most likely to be affected include:
Eastbound Trains: 526, 528, 530, 532
Westbound Trains: 527, 529, 531, 533, 535, 537
If you are traveling to or from the East Bay or San Francisco during the midday period, you may want to consider utilizing BART to transfer to/from Capitol Corridor trains at the Richmond Intermodal Station to avoid potential train delays.
Thank you for your patience as we work with our colleagues at Union Pacific to complete this tie renewal project.
