Metrolink's Orange County and Inland Empire lines will be canceled for the next three weekends due to construction.

San Diego Northern Railroad construction crews will be installing a second main line track and new rail bridges in the corridor in an effort to improve rail services, Metrolink officials said.

In addition to the weekend closures, Orange County Line trains 644 and 645 will be canceled on Fridays, Oct. 28 and Nov. 4.

The cancelations also will affect Amtrak's schedule, but officials said there will be other options. Travelers were told to check Amtrak's website for scheduling information.
