In this issue: The Three Busy Blocks
Scheduling, challenges and "finished" work
As the Downtown Streetscape Project moves forward, the project team thanks residents and business owners for their continued patience when dealing with the inconvenience of heavy construction. How can we answer your questions and help solve problems? Please let us know.
A most-common question is when will construction be happening near your home or business. The latest construction schedules are posted in the upper right-hand corner of the Downtown Streetscape Project web page. The schedules are kept as up-to-date as possible.
From home improvement projects to multi-million dollar street improvements, any construction job presents challenges. Downtown Streetscape has coincided with one of the rainiest winters in recent history. Some pieces of the job can't get finished until utility workers remove a pole or relocate lines. Downtown Streetscape has faced its share of challenges, which unfortunately create delays and can cause crews to move elsewhere while an issue gets resolved.
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. That, too, is an unfortunate consequence of a complicated project that, when finished, will greatly beautify and improve pedestrian and vehicular safety in downtown Del Mar.
Another important reminder: Convenient parking is always free at the Del Mar Civic Center, 1050 Camino del Mar.
