In this issue: Closures for Crosswalk Construction

1100 block reconstruction
11th Street just east of Camino del Mar is scheduled to reopen next week with new pavement, curbing and brick paver crosswalks.

For the Downtown Streetscape Project, a full closure of 11th Street just east of Camino del Mar is expected to remain in place until July 5 so crews can build brick paver crosswalks and pave the road.

Also next week, complete closures of 13
th and 12th streets just west of Camino del Mar are scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to build brick paver crosswalks at those locations.

Extra-wide sidewalks are part of the new construction on the 1100 block of west Camino del Mar.

On the 1100 block, asphalt and concrete work

Concrete and asphalt work continued on the 1100 block this week with crews building curbs, gutters and sidewalks and paving the northern half of the block with fresh asphalt for angled parking. Also on the north end, at 12th Street, crews built a footing for a retaining wall. 

Throughout the project, electrical crews worked 12-hour days to finish installation of conduit in the Camino del Mar medians, among other tasks
