Shift Program Construction Update

March 2020

The government has deemed public works construction activities to be essential, so we’re continuing to keep active construction projects moving during the COVID-19 pandemic. Protecting the health and safety of the San Diego region, including our partners, contractors, and stakeholders, is a top priority for SANDAG. Be assured that construction crews are following precautionary health measures, and we continue to monitor developments and follow all health guidance and orders. For additional information, visit sandag.org/COVID-19.

To protect the health and safety of staff, partners, and the general public, SANDAG offices are closed to the public. Our team is working remotely during this time to provide essential services, and to continue progress on critical regional projects. 

For any questions or inquiries regarding construction taking place in your neighborhood, please feel free to contact Shift at info@shiftsandiego.com.


Mid-Coast Trolley Construction, SANDAG Project

Trolley Overcrossing, south of Nobel Drive
Falsework removal at the Mid-Coast Trolley overcrossing was completed last month. The work, which required full overnight closures of Interstate 5 (I-5), progressed ahead of schedule and was completed four days earlier than anticipated. Crews are continuing to remove falsework along the west side of I-5, moving north from the overcrossing. Once complete, slope work underneath the Trolley bridge will begin. This work will include hauling soil on and off site and will require lane closures. Watch a time lapse video of the recently completed falsework removal.

Genesee Avenue
Mid-Coast Trolley crews continue to remove falsework along Genesee Avenue. The final section of falsework is scheduled to be removed from the future UTC Terminus in mid-April and will require overnight full closures of Genesee Avenue between La Jolla Village Drive and Nobel Drive. Traffic controls and detour routes will be in place. Storm drain work along Eastgate Mall and Executive Drive is in progress, but schedules may change due to inclement weather. The latest details, including impacts and timing, will be posted to ShiftSanDiego.com in advance of the closures.

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

Beginning in early April, night work on Muir College Drive will require lane closures at the North Torrey Pines intersection. Work will include installing a new traffic signal at the intersection, connecting the storm drain and replacing the inner conduit and wiring around the intersection. In addition, new streetlights will be installed. Work is expected to continue through the month of April. This work will occur at night and will require lane closures.


Voigt Drive Improvements, Joint Project of Caltrans, SANDAG, and UC San Diego 

The realignment of Voigt Drive and Campus Point Drive is primarily focused on accommodating the future Trolley station at Voigt Drive and will assist with improving traffic circulation in the area. Improvements along Voigt Drive and Campus Point Drive will require intermittent road closures and may begin as early as mid-April. Work is anticipated to continue for approximately 18 months. Additional details, including closure schedules and detour routes, will be provided once finalized.

Scripps La Jolla Campus Parking Lot D, Private Project

A 2,000-car parking garage is being built on the Scripps La Jolla campus for both patient and employee parking. In addition, a pedestrian bridge will be built across Scripps Health Drive to connect the structure to the Anderson Pavilion. Crews are currently working on scaffolding – the temporary structure used to support a work crew and materials during construction – for the bridge and conducting concrete pours for the roof of the parking garage. The scheduled completion for the parking garage is summer 2020.
