The City’s Ten-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP), approved by the City Council in 2013, puts forth the City’s work plan for capital projects, major maintenance and refurbishment projects, and significant equipment purchases related to facilities. A project titled ‘Roundabout – San Dieguito Drive and Jimmy Durante Boulevard’ was included within the CIP Program. The project was described as including construction of a roundabout and other streetscape improvements.
In 2014, the scope of the Citywide Sidewalk Improvement Project was expanded to incorporate the design, environmental processing, and construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Drive.In January 2015, as the Citywide Sidewalk Improvement Project was under environmental review, the roundabout project was separated from Segment 2 of the Citywide Sidewalk Improvement Project in order to avoid a delay to the upcoming construction of the sidewalk, roadway and drainage improvements along Jimmy Durante Boulevard and Camino del Mar from San Dieguito Drive to Plaza. At that time it was determined that the roundabout would be processed as a separate project with its own environmental document. The project is out for contractor bid and staff expects to take the construction contract to City Council in November, 2016, for approval. Construction is expected to start in January, 2017, and last for approximately 5 months.
