Federal rail official takes up-close look at Del Mar bluffs

FRA administrator Bose and elected officials on train

On the invitation of Rep. Mike Levin, Mayor Tracy Martinez rode the COASTER April 13 with Amit Bose, Administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration, to view erosion on the Del Mar bluffs.

The short trip took Bose, Levin and other elected officials from Sorrento Valley to Solana Beach. 

Bose later visited San Clemente, where a landslide in September shut down rail service for many months. 

As the top rail official for the federal government, Bose noted that the FRA has "robust funding" available for rail projects and encouraged local officials to seek that funding.
