59th Street Station Closure
Low-Floor Station Modification Project Construction
Saturday, February 4 and Sunday, February 5, 2023   

Service Disruptions: 

Due to construction efforts for the low-floor station modification of the 59th Street Station, the station will be closed the weekend of February 4-5, 2023. The closure will impact light rail travel on the Gold Line. A bus bridge (buses) will be in place between the 29th Street and Power Inn light rail stations from the start of morning service on Saturday, February 4, 2023 through end of service day on Sunday, February 5, 2023. Normal light rail service will resume on Monday, February 6, 2023.  

Construction crews will continue work on the 59th Street Station between Monday, February 6, 2023 and Friday, March 3, 2023. However, this is not expected to impact light rail service on the Gold Line or the 59th Street Station.  

Note: During construction at the 59th Street Station, the Fare Vending Machines and Connect Card readers will not be available for use until Friday, March 3, 2023.  

About the Project: 

59th Street Station is the first light rail station that will be modified. After this station is successfully completed, additional stations will be temporarily closed in phases. Riders will be notified about upcoming service disruptions in advance. To stay informed of light rail service disruptions, download the free Alert SacRT app from the App Store or Google Play. 

The station modifications are one part of the Light Rail Modernization Project, which also include adding a passing track to provide 15-minute service to Folsom area stations and the purchase of new low-floor light rail vehicles.
