SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Transportation Commission has earmarked nearly $50 million to the San Diego Association of Governments for a double-track project on the Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo rail corridor.

The funding will help convert the corridor from single to double track, replace bridges, and upgrade signals on the Pacific coast route. The work is part of an Interstate 5 transportation project spearheaded by the California Department of Transportation and the San Diego Association of Governments.

The railroad corridor operates Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner, San Diego Coaster, and Los Angeles Metrolink trains.
