Landscaping crews this week finished planting ornamental trees between 15th and 13th streets on both sides of Camino del Mar and along the median. More tree planting, from 13th Street southward, is scheduled for the week ahead.

The landscaping program has crews working from north to south, block by block, first with trees and later with shrubs and other groundcover.

Also this week, a separate crew finished three weeks worth of trench repairs. During that time, the asphalt crew replaced temporary patches left earlier by electrical workers after installing conduit.

Week of August 26

  • 13th Street, north to south, tree planting along median and sidewalks;

  • Punch-list items.

Streetscape in a nutshell

The Downtown Streetscape Project will beautify Camino del Mar and improve safety between 9th and Plaza streets. The $7.2 million project includes new sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes, street furniture, landscaping, paving and other improvements. Construction is scheduled to run through August. The Downtown Streetscape Project was first envisioned in 1996 as part of a citywide street and sidewalk improvement program.

Free parking at Civic Center

Visitors to downtown Del Mar can park for free at the Del Mar Civic Center, 1050 Camino Del Mar. The garage is accessible from entrances on 10th and 11th streets and by a stairway or elevator that connect to the plaza above.
