Shift Program Construction Update

June 2019

With new construction on the horizon, the Shift program is dedicated to providing you with up-to-date information about the major projects bringing new amenities and resources to your neighborhood. Please note, construction schedules are subject to change. To confirm the information below and other work schedules, contact Shift at 844-SHIFT-SD.

Construction Term Highlight: Stress

Stress is an internal force distributed within a structure to strengthen it. One method of “stressing” a bridge is to run a cable through the structure lengthwise, pull the cable taut, and secure it at each end to create tension. The deck for the Mid-Coast Trolley needs to be poured and stressed (section by section, moving south) before the falsework can be removed along Genesee Avenue. This process is anticipated to run through 2019, with ongoing overnight closures along Genesee Avenue. Overall construction in this area will likely continue for another 14 months, including restriping for final configuration.

Crews use post-tensioning equipment to pull cables through one section of the Trolley bridge along Genesee Avenue.

Mid-Coast Trolley Construction, SANDAG Project

Genesee Avenue
Currently, work includes deck pours and diaphragm pours (the diaphragm provides support to the deck slab and aids in the overall distribution of weight). In addition, the east towers on Genesee Avenue are being removed. Electrical systems to power the Trolley (traction power substations) are currently being installed at Executive Station. The schedule for all the deck closures at intersections along Genesee Avenue is in process. A message board will be set out two weeks in advance of those closures, which are all anticipated to occur in July. Available closure updates can be found on the Shift Interactive Construction Map at shiftmap.sandag.org/mapview.aspx.

I-5 Overcrossings at Voigt Drive and south of Nobel Drive
Full closures on I-5 began in June to remove falsework from the Voigt Drive overcrossing and install falsework for the overcrossing just south of Nobel Drive. Closures began on southbound lanes and,after work was completed on the southbound side, then shifted to northbound lanes. Get the latest closures and project updates by visiting: KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/MidCoastNotices.
Southbound I-5 Auxiliary Lanes at Voigt Drive to La Jolla Village Drive
Two southbound auxiliary lanes are being added to the I-5 Freeway, which will provide a direct lane on southbound I-5 from the Genesee Avenue on-ramp to the La Jolla Village Drive off-ramp. Auxiliary lanes are added between interchanges to provide drivers with extra space for merging and to eliminate congestion when traveling from on-ramp to off-ramp. More information regarding this project is to come – visit ShiftSanDiego.com to learn more.
Closures of I-5 lanes have allowed crews to install falsework for the future Trolley overcrossing south of Nobel Drive.

North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood, UC San Diego Project

A closure of Muir College Drive began in mid-June and is scheduled to run through August 31, 2020. As a result of the closure, the UC San Diego shuttle stop previously located on Muir College Drive has been relocated to the northbound side of North Torrey Pines Road, between Muir College Drive and Pangea Drive. In addition to this closure, there will be a tie-in to the water main on North Torrey Pines and new traffic signals installed at the intersection of North Torrey Pines Road and Muir College Drive; timing for the work is to-be-determined.


Pure Water Phase 1, City of San Diego Project

Construction on Phase 1 of the Pure Water project is anticipated to begin later this year. A groundbreaking at the North City facility on Eastgate Mall occurred in mid-June. This summer, preliminary site work and grading will take place at the North City Pure Water Facility and the North City Water Reclamation Plant. Construction on the University City section of the Morena Pump Station and Pipelines project is anticipated to begin in 2020. Follow @ShiftSanDiego on Twitter for the most up-to-date information on this project.

The Shift program hosted a table at the Pure Water Open House community event on June 22, 2019 at the North City Water Reclamation Plant.

Fire Station 50, City of San Diego Project

A groundbreaking ceremony was held this spring at the project site, signaling the beginning of project construction. Work that may create impacts include connections to the existing sewer line, installation of the emergency traffic signal and cutting through the existing median. This summer, utility work and grading and environmental work will be ongoing. Stay tuned for more on Fire Station 50 by visiting the Shift Interactive Construction Map at shiftmap.sandag.org/mapview.aspx.


Torrey Pines Golf Course, City of San Diego Project 

Major south course renovations are continuing as planned. The project is expected to be completed by the end of August. Improvements include installing new wall-to-wall irrigation to increase efficiency and effectiveness of watering. Fairways and bunkers will be strategically shifted on holes 4, 9, 10, 12, and 17. Collars will be re-grassed, there will be new approaches on all holes. More information can be found at sandiego.gov/park-and-recreation/golf/torreypines/southcourseproject.
