After experiencing a major water line replacement project along the 30th Street Corridor, residents of North Park south to Juniper Street in the area must now prepare for construction at night.
Next week, San Diego will begin repaving and redeploying the street south of Polk Avenue to Juniper Street, adding new, separate bike lines, it was announced on Friday.
Bike paths will be installed in early July, officials said.
To help minimize impacts to traffic and businesses along 30th Street with outdoor activity permits, construction will be carried out overnight Sunday through Thursday. Project staff have worked with business owners who will need to remove temporary outdoor dining terraces from the street before construction begins and replace them once their segment of the street has been paved.
New bicycle lanes installed on both sides of the street will be seven feet wide, while general traffic lanes will be 11 feet wide. The new street layout will use physical barriers, including plastic poles and parked vehicles, to safely separate cyclists and micro-mobility users from vehicular traffic.
“What we have accomplished here is no small feat; we have been able to upgrade several kilometers of critical infrastructure and provide residents with a new way of getting around their community,” said James Nagelvoort, director of the department. engineering and investment projects of the city. “I would like to thank all of my staff who spent countless hours in the field, day and night, to make this project a success.
The approximately $ 30 million 30th Street Pipeline Replacement Project, which replaced more than five miles of water pipes in North Park, Golden Hill, and Southeastern communities, is part of the the city.
