The Serra Siding Extension Project, currently in the environmental and planning phase, would extend 1.2 miles of siding track along the existing rail right-of-way, south from Victoria Boulevard, ending just before Beach Road. The siding track runs next to the main track and allows trains to pass each other. The project would prevent delays and enable more frequent train service.

A virtual public meeting, which will allow the public to learn more about the project and the environmental review process and ask questions, is scheduled from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24. To register for the event, visit octa.net/SerraSiding.
Metrolink is seeking input on the scope and content of the project’s environmental document. Read more about the project in the Notice of Preparation on Metrolink’s website at MetrolinkTrains.com/SCORE.
