More Work Needed on the Railroad

SAN CLEMENTE - There's been more problems reported with the rail line connecting San Diego and Orange Counties.

The Orange County Transpiration Authority temporarily suspended freight traffic on the rail line in San Clemente for two days after a measuring device showed abnormal movement on the bluffs. This comes as passenger rail service in the area remains suspended as crews work to build a seawall and use other methods to shore up the crumbling bluffs.

Officials say the tracks have moved more than 28 inches toward the ocean over the last year. Freight trains carry nearly one-billion dollars in goods through the area every year and the corridor is also used to move military equipment.

Repair work on the rail line is expected to last through February.
