Service Disruptions Begin in January 2024 as SacRT Prepares for New Low-Floor Trains with Platform Construction

December 20, 2023 SacRT News

Effective Monday, January 8, 2024, SacRT will begin full platform modifications at the Sunrise Station. Rather than a complete closure of the station, SacRT will implement a phased approach, closing only one side of the station platform at a time on weekdays. Full weekend station closures with bus bridges will also be in effect.

Below is the schedule for January 2024; however, the schedule is subject to change due to weather and/or other impacts.

GOLD LINE STATION CLOSURES AT SUNRISE STATION

  • Monday, January 8 – Friday, January 12 (Sunrise Station Outbound Side Closed)
    The Sunrise Station outbound platform (trains headed toward Historic Folsom) will be closed for boarding and deboarding.
  • Weekend of January 13 and 14 (Sunrise Station Closed – NO light rail service)
    Gold Line: Bus bridge (shuttle buses between stations) between Cordova Town Center Station and Historic Folsom Station.
  • Monday, January 22 – Friday, January 26 (Sunrise Station Inbound Side Closed)
    The Sunrise Station inbound platform (trains headed toward Sacramento Valley Station) will be closed for boarding and deboarding.

SacRT will continue full station platform construction at a different Gold Line station each month through July 2024. Learn more about the project at sacrt.com/stationclosures. Customers are encouraged to download the free Alert SacRT app (Google Play and the App Store) to stay informed.

As a reminder, starting Tuesday, January 2, 2024, light rail service on the Gold Line is not available between Iron Point and Historic Folsom Stations for the Folsom15-Minute Service Project, which is adding a passing track at Glenn/Robert G. Holderness Station to provide 15-minute light rail service to all Folsom area stations. Learn more at sacrt.com/Folsom15.
