The long-awaited Downtown Streetscape began this week with crews demolishing sidewalks and intersections on the east side of Camino del Mar between 15th and 13th streets.
Workers removed the curb ramps on both sides of 15th Street as part of improvements to the busy crosswalk. Also this week, workers began removing unhealthy trees.
In the construction area, one of two northbound lanes and some parallel parking will be closed during work hours. Sidewalks could be closed temporarily. Please read and follow all posted signs.
For the week ahead, work is scheduled for the curb ramps at 15th Street and the ramps and crosswalk at 14th Street. More demolition of sidewalks between 14th and 13th streets is planned.
Starting on the week of Jan. 14, crosswalk work at 13th Street is set to begin, followed by curb and sidewalk demolition between 13th and 12th streets.
