Plan In The Works For Seasonal Del Mar Train Platform

GUESTS

Muggs Stoll, Director of Land Use and Transportation Planning for SANDAG

Don Mosier, Del Mar City Councilman

Racing season begins at Del Mar this week and North County residents are bracing for the usual traffic jams along I-5.

But what if the races or the annual County Fair didn't bring stalled traffic along the I-5?

The San Diego Association of Governments, or SANDAG, has a project in the works to add a seasonal train platform and double track at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. It is an expensive plan, and a lot of different stakeholders have to sign off on it, but the groundwork and funding are proceeding.

For more information, check out these documents:
