Mid-Coast Trolley Construction, SANDAG Project

Genesee Avenue
Falsework is being dropped along the Genesee viaduct, moving from north (Campus Point Drive) to south (UTC Terminus). This process is anticipated to run through the end of 2019. Ongoing overnight closures along Genesee Avenue are being implemented to drop falsework, begin repaving and restripe vehicle lanes. Available closure updates can be found at ShiftSanDiego.com/Notices.

Falsework removal along the Genesee viaduct will begin in the north and move south to UTC Terminus, pictured here.
Voigt Drive and Gilman Drive
A closure of Voigt Drive and Gilman Drive is anticipated to occur in early- to mid-June to allow for removal of the viaduct falsework alongside the roadway. A full freeway closure of I-5 is also anticipated to occur in mid-June, to remove the falsework across the freeway at Voigt Drive. For available closure schedule information, visit ShiftSanDiego.com/Notices.
Falsework is beginning to be lowered along the Voigt viaduct.

UC San Diego Mesa Housing Pedestrian and Bike Bridge, UC San Diego and City of San Diego Project

The first round of girders, the large support beams for the bridge, were delivered in March for the UC San Diego Health side of the project. Additional girders were delivered for the mid-center site in May. This bridge will provide a direct route for pedestrians and bicyclists, improving mobility between Mesa Housing, East Campus Medical Center and the Main Campus. This project is estimated to be completed in September 2019.

Bridge girder installation and delivery continues at the future Pedestrian and Bike Bridge.

Fire Station 50, City of San Diego Project

Located on the southeast corner of Nobel Drive and Shoreline Drive, Fire Station 50 has an anticipated completion date of fall 2020. The site plan includes a new emergency traffic signal, public lobby access off Nobel Drive, efficient storm water design, solar panels, screened parking areas and more. Work that may create impacts to the public includes connections to the existing sewer line, installation of the emergency traffic signal and cutting through the existing median. Stay tuned for more information about this project in the coming months.

Currently, the project team is paving the slope beneath the bridge and installing uplighting, which is slated to be complete by late July. The lanes past the Gilman Drive Bridge near Medical Center Drive South will be restriped once work is completed on the median and gutters, anticipated to be completed by late June or July.

Work beneath the Gilman Drive Bridge is underway.
