During the week of April 1, the east side of 9th Street will be inaccessible to through traffic at Camino del Mar; during the week of April 8, the west side of 9th Street will be inaccessible to through traffic at Camino del Mar. The road closures apply only to the immediate work area. Detour routes and pedestrian access to all businesses will be provided. 

Work near Board & Brew

Also next week, crews are scheduled to begin digging holes for tree planting near Board & Brew. Pedestrian traffic will not be impacted but noise and dust could affect customers on the front patio.
