11th Street crosswalk

As part of the Downtown Streetscape Project, a makeover of the 1100 block of west Camino del Mar continued this week with curb, sidewalk and crosswalk construction.

Workers also demolished asphalt on the south end of the block to make way for new pavement to be installed next week. 

July 22 to 26: SB Camino del Mar lane closure

Paving work between 12th and 11th streets from July 22 to 26 will require a round-the-clock closure of the outside traffic lane, bike lane and parking on southbound Camino del Mar. The work involves demolishing existing pavement and re-grading the roadway so southbound lanes align properly with newly-constructed curbs, sidewalks and angled parking.
