14th Street crosswalk demo
After heavy rains on Wednesday and Thursday, workers began demolition on Friday as part of a brick paver crosswalk installation at 14th Street.

The largest rainstorms of the year dumped nearly three inches of rain on Del Mar this week and shut down construction of the Downtown Streetscape Project on Wednesday and Thursday.

Work resumed today, however, with crews demolishing asphalt on the east side of Camino del Mar at 14th Street to make way for the first of many brick paver crosswalks.

More crosswalk installations are set to begin next week on the east side of Camino del Mar at 13th and 12th Streets. The schedule for the week ahead also shows construction of drains, curbs and gutters in the 1100 block.

Construction will be dark on Monday in observance of the Presidents Day holiday.

Intersection closures

The T intersection at 14th Street and Camino del Mar is scheduled to close from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. today and next week to allow for the installation of a paver crosswalk. The closure will affect the immediate work zone only. Maiden Lane and access to a parking garage on the northeast corner of the intersection will remain open. A detour route directs vehicles to 15th and 13th Streets. At the close of each workday, crews will lay steel plates over the crosswalks to reopen the intersection.
More paver crosswalk installations, at 13th and 12th streets, are scheduled for next week. During this period, through-access will not be provided after work hours because of narrow roads and safety concerns. Detour routes will send vehicles to 14th and 11th streets.

Streetscape in a nutshell

The Downtown Streetscape Project will beautify Camino del Mar and improve safety between 9th and Plaza streets. The $6.8 million project includes new sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes, street furniture, landscaping, paving and other improvements. Construction is scheduled to run through June. The Downtown Streetscape Project was first envisioned in 1996 as part of a citywide street and sidewalk improvement program.
