Sewer, Water and Arterials Paving (SWAP)
A new sidewalk along the south side of Via de la Valle has been constructed adjacent to the Del Mar Fairgrounds from Camino del Mar to Jimmy Durante Boulevard. Northbound Camino del Mar from the San Dieguito River Bridge to Via de la Valle will also receive a new sidewalk and parking spaces. Approximately 151 total parking spaces will be added to Camino del Mar and Via de la Valle as a result of the work.
Additionally, three mid-block pedestrian crossings are planned on Camino del Mar in the vicinity of the San Dieguito River Bridge. One crossing will be located south of the bridge, a second crossing will be immediately north of the bridge, and a third crossing will be located near the northern entrance to North Beach.
Two mid-block pedestrian crossings have also been added on Coast Boulevard in the vicinity of the Powerhouse Community Center. The first is across from Powerhouse Park adjacent to the existing loading zone, and the second is across from Jake’s Del Mar parking lot.
Once the underground infrastructure and new sidewalks are complete, the affected areas of Via de la Valle, Camino del Mar and Coast Boulevard will be repaved and new pavement markings will be painted to improve mobility and safety for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
