Scheduled maintenance will provide for safe, smooth travel throughout the region

LOS ANGELES - BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) is performing routine maintenance on tracks between Yorba Linda and Los Angeles Union Station this month, which may result in delays to late-night and early morning trains on the Orange County and 91 lines.

The renewal of rail and ties is essential to provide the safe transport of passengers and other rail providers. The track renovation is scheduled to be completed by the end of July.

To minimize the impact on the traveling public, BNSF is completing the effort during evening hours. The Angels Express Train traveling north from Anaheim may experience up to 45-minute delays following games during the months of June and July due to the construction. Fans returning to stops south of Angel Stadium will not be affected. 

Additionally, Metrolink's Orange County and 91 line morning trains traveling into L.A. Union Station may incur 10 to 15 minute delays due to speed restrictions.

Metrolink will use its station electronic message boards, website and social media to advise passengers of specific train delays.
