Mid-Coast Trolley Construction, SANDAG Project

Genesee Avenue
The last concrete deck pour along Genesee Avenue was completed on November 14. Concrete work will continue over the next several weeks but on a smaller scale. Crews will begin to remove falsework, the temporary framework used to support a structure during its construction, from the viaduct near Nobel Drive after the winter holidays. Falsework will be fully removed, except for at the Trolley stations, by the end of March 2020. Overall construction in this area will continue over the next year.

Voigt Drive
Work has begun on a project to realign the intersection of Campus Point Drive and Voigt Drive and to widen Voigt Drive to accommodate the future Trolley station. Construction impacts in this area will continue through the next several weeks and will include intermittent nighttime closures on Voigt Drive to allow for utility work, restriping, setting k-rail (concrete barriers) and other construction activities.

Nobel Drive
Nightly closures of Nobel Drive began on December 8 to remove falsework from the Trolley bridge over Nobel Drive and to remove k-rail from the site. Closures are scheduled to take place December 8–10, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night.

Trolley Overcrossing south of Nobel Drive
On November 18, Mid-Coast Trolley crews conducted a concrete deck pour along the overcrossing south of Nobel Drive, where the Trolley bridge crosses over Interstate 5 (I-5). Falsework is anticipated to be removed in February 2020 and will require freeway closures. More information will be provided once dates are confirmed. Visit the SANDAG YouTube channel to view a video of the recently completed deck pour.

Rose Canyon Bike Path, SANDAG Project 

A full closure of the Rose Canyon Bike Path began on the morning of Tuesday, December 9 for crews to pave the final section of the new path. The bike path is expected to reopen by 6 p.m. on Friday, December 13. During the closure, a bicycle-carrying shuttle service will be in operation from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily to transport cyclists and pedestrians around the work area. The closure was initially scheduled to begin on November 19 but was postponed twice due to forecasted inclement weather. Please check KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/MidCoastNotices or follow us on Twitter @ShiftSanDiego for the latest information.

I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange, SANDAG and Caltrans Project 

The I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange Project is a joint project between SANDAG and Caltrans. In recent weeks, ramp meters were activated at the northbound and southbound I-5 on-ramps from Genesee Avenue and the southbound on-ramp from Roselle Street. Traffic operations engineers have modified the northbound on-ramp meter at Genesee Avenue to operate Monday through Friday, from 6 to 7 p.m. to minimize traffic back-up. Over the coming weeks, Caltrans will continue to evaluate and adjust the meters at all I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange freeway ramps. The activation of the ramp meters is part of the final set of completion tasks associated with the I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange Project.

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

Traffic signal and sidewalk construction at the intersection of North Torrey Pines Road and Muir College Drive is targeted to begin in mid-December, after UC San Diego’s fall quarter is complete, and will continue for approximately two weeks after work has begun. In addition, a new right-hand-only turn lane from Genesee onto southbound North Torrey Pines Road will be added to the intersection. Timing is TBD. The water line connection on the northbound lanes of North Torrey Pines Road will require closures. Timing is TBD and will require approximately one week of night work. Two academic towers, buildings 1 and 2, will be topping out this month. Cranes from two residential towers, buildings 3 and 4, will be coming down this month.

Work continues on the UC San Diego campus
