Sacramento Regional Transit is testing new light-rail tracks between Sunrise Boulevard and downtown Folsom and RT officials are warning pedestrians and motorists to stay alert.

Spokeswoman Jo Noble says since light-rail is new to that area of town, some people may be caught off guard. "They’re not used to seeing the crossing arms coming down and actual train activity so we just want to make sure everyone’s aware that they’re going to start seeing train activity and that this testing is going to go on all the way up until October."

She says trains will be running on a regular basis for testing purposes 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. The line is expected to be ready for passengers on October 15th.
