Reuse and Recycle
Construction on Camino del Mar at 12th Street is bringing new sidewalks, angled parking, improved drainage and a pedestrian plaza made of brick that was salvaged from the same location.

Throughout the Downtown Streetscape, brick accents add visual and textural interest to designs that include new sidewalks, curbs, gutters, furniture and landscaping.

Work this week also included demolition, drainage installations, the relocation of a fire hydrant and pouring ramps and sidewalks.

For the week beginning March 11, construction activities will continue to concentrate on the east side of the 1100 block of Camino del Mar while advancing southward.

Street furnishings approved

The City Council voted unanimously on Monday to approve redesigns for benches and waste receptacles (PDF) as proposed by the Del Mar Village Association, Business Support Advisory Committee and Arts Advisory Committee. The benches and chairs match the wood-and-concrete furnishings already in place just south of Starbucks on Camino del Mar at 15th Street. Trash and recycling receptacles are clad in wood and are similar to those at the Del Mar Civic Center. 

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.

Safety is no accident

In construction areas, one of two lanes and parallel parking will be closed during work hours. Sidewalks could be closed temporarily. Please read and follow all posted signs. Do not cross orange fencing and stay clear of closed sidewalks. Thank you!
