As part of the Downtown Streetscape Project, the City has scheduled grinding and resurfacing of Camino del Mar and portions of side streets for the week of Sept. 23.

From Monday, Sept. 23, through Friday, Sept. 27, no parking will be permitted on Camino del Mar between 9th Street and the northern Plaza entrance. Traffic lanes and side streets will be subject to intermittent closure.

Grinding and paving operations are loud and dusty and involve truck traffic and multiple pieces of heavy equipment. Residents and business owners are advised to plan accordingly. During the week of Sept. 23, free parking will be available at the Del Mar Plaza and L’Auberge Del Mar. Parking is always free at the Del Mar Civic Center.

Streetscape in a nutshell

The Downtown Streetscape Project will beautify Camino del Mar and improve safety between 9th and Plaza streets. The $8.1 million project includes new sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes, street furniture, landscaping, paving and other improvements. Construction is scheduled to run through September. The Downtown Streetscape Project was first envisioned in 1996 as part of a citywide street and sidewalk improvement program.
