June 10 to 21: 11th Street just east of Camino del Mar

Street and utility work will require the complete closure of 11th Street just east of Camino del Mar from June 10 through June 21. About 50 feet of the road surface is scheduled to be removed entirely, regraded and repaved to align with newly-build sidewalks and pedestrian ramps. The new segment of 11th Street will include new utility connections and new brick paver crosswalks. Email:   

Thank you for your patience 

The Downtown Streetscape Project team thanks residents, business owners and visitors for their patience when dealing with the inconvenience of heavy construction. Construction schedules are kept as up-to-date as possible and are posted in the upper right-hand corner of this webpage. For safety, some planting areas, footings and materials storage must be marked with orange cones and fencing -- making a segment that's mostly finished appear unfinished. Contact us with any concerns at 858-755-9342 or

Overview12th Street crosswalk

The Downtown Streetscape Project will bring new sidewalks, paving, bike lanes, crosswalks, trees and landscaping to seven blocks of Camino del Mar between 9th and Plaza streets. The $7.2 million project also includes major updates of street lighting and furnishings along Del Mar’s main thoroughfare. Construction is scheduled to run from January through July.

Sidewalk construction on the east side of Camino del Mar is finished while construction on the west side of the highway and medians is ongoing. Fresh blacktop and lane striping is scheduled for the end of the job.

Streetscape costs are expected to total $7.2 million and will be covered with a combination of funds from Measure Q; the existing Streetscape budget and financing.

The Downtown Streetscape Project was first envisioned in 1996 as part of a citywide street and sidewalk improvement program.

Estimated Timeline

  • January through April: East side of Camino del Mar
  • April through June: West side of Camino del Mar
  • June: Camino del Mar medians and landscaping
  • July: Camino del Mar paving, striping and signage.

Safety and Parking

In construction areas, one of two traffic lanes and some parallel parking could be closed during work hours. Sidewalks could be closed temporarily. Please read and follow all posted signs.

Visitors, business owners and their employees are encouraged to park at no cost at the Del Mar Civic Center, 1050 Camino del Mar. In an effort to minimize parking impacts, contractors and work crews will park and stage equipment and materials at offsite locations.
