In this issue: Focus on 15th Street

Despite rainfall on Monday, Thursday and today, construction of crosswalks and sidewalk ramps continued at the 15th Street intersection with Camino del Mar. If the weather cooperates, three of four crosswalks will be finished by the weekend.

Also this week, work began in the Camino del Mar median at 15th Street, with crews removing vegetation and installing irrigation lines and curbing. That work will continue to advance southward during the weeks ahead.
