City officials nearly doubled their estimates of earthquake damage to local homes, businesses and public buildings as Caltrans engineers dynamited a ruined Golden State Freeway overpass and workers put finishing touches on hastily built Metrolink stations in Palmdale and Lancaster Sunday. U.S. Transportation Secretary Federico Pena thanked workers who erected a pair of Metrolink stations in just four days in anticipation of a crush of commuters headed south into Los Angeles this morning.

Officials are scheduled to break ground Tuesday on a $1-million child-care facility at the Sylmar-San Fernando Metrolink station. The center, aimed at helping adults who use the rail system, will accommodate up to 70 children, from infants to age 5. Slated to open in February, the single-story, Mission-style building will be constructed at the southeast end of the station.

The new Metrolink station built right after the earthquake here has been a huge success, but there's one problem: it's on the wrong side of the tracks. Moving to replace the existing platform, the Palmdale City Council told its staff to find a new location after rejecting the idea of spending $300,000 to build an underpass to allow passengers to continue boarding at the present station.

Monday's opening of a second Metrolink train station should result in a significant reduction in cross-town commuter traffic, city officials said. The new station is on Via Princessa west of Sierra Highway in Canyon Country. Until the station opened, many Metrolink passengers in the Santa Clarita Valley had to drive to Saugus to take the train to Los Angeles and other destinations south. City officials said this cross-town commute was clogging surface streets.
