2018 Streetscape Segment 5 Project
City Council approved a citywide sidewalk connectivity project to improve pedestrian access, bicycle safety, drainage and roadway paving along Camino Del Mar, Jimmy Durante Blvd and Via De La Valle on May 8, 2013. Segment 5 of the citywide plan refers to the section of Camino del Mar between Carmel Valley Road and 4th Street/Del Mar Heights Road. Segment 5 maintains two northbound lanes, one southbound lane, and the current free-right turn, from westbound Carmel Valley Road to northbound Camino del Mar. The project also includes additional parking spaces, a double left turn lane from Camino del Mar southbound to Del Mar Heights Road eastbound, and a new multi-purpose pathway on the west side of Camino del Mar. Medians and landscaping areas will be planted with drought tolerant vegetation, as presented to the Parks and Recreation Committee.
On March 5, 2018 City Council approved the award of the Segment 5 Construction Contract to Eagle Paving Company. Project construction scheduled for July 2018 completion.
