The track work that Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) is currently performing between Richmond (RIC) and Martinez (MTZ), has been extended to include two additional work periods:
- Saturday, February 22 through Friday, February 28, and
- Saturday, March 8 through Saturday, March 15
The service changes described below, and the resulting temporary schedule, will be in effect during the entire February work period, and from March 8 through March 12 during the March work period. On March 13, 14, and 15, affected trains will operate according to the regular schedule; however, passengers should expect some minor delays.
Track work will take place between Richmond and Martinez from 7pm to 4am during the above periods. Peak-hour trains will operate with minor schedule modifications on select night train schedules. Trains can be expected to reach their final destinations (Westbound: Oakland Jack London, Oakland Coliseum, San Jose Diridon, Eastbound: Sacramento) 15 to 20 minutes later than the regular schedule. Please expect minor delays during work periods.
