After two months of closure, rail service between Orange County and San Diego County resumed Monday on both Metrolink and Amtrak lines.

The tracks were closed on Jan. 24 due to a landslide. Workers have been building a 200-foot-long retaining wall to protect the tracks from additional falling debris.The railroad tracks in the San Clemente area endured a pair of extended closures last year due to mudslides and debris. The first occurred in April, 2023, near the Casa Romantica Culture Center and Gardens, blocking the tracks for a month while repairs were completed.

"For the longer term, OCTA and its rail partners will continue to work with local, state and federal stakeholders on both near-term and long-term solutions for protecting rail movement along this critical corridor," read the statement.
