Mid-Coast Trolley Construction, SANDAG Project

Genesee Avenue
All finishing work for the Trolley bridge along Genesee Avenue has been completed. Construction continues at the future Executive Drive and UTC Trolley stations. Additionally, crews are installing underground fire lines and irrigation lines along the roadway. Daytime and nighttime closures are ongoing, with daytime closures only being implemented as needed. For the latest updates on construction activities along Genesee Avenue, please visit KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/MidCoastNotices.

Trolley Underpass at La Jolla Colony Drive
Crews have nearly completed construction activities at La Jolla Colony Drive! The roadway near the Trolley underpass has been repaved and restriped, and crash attenuators—bumper-style barriers that are placed to reduce damage to structures and vehicles in the event of a collision—have been installed. Later this month, crews will install final signage in the area.

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

A full closure of Voigt Drive remains in effect between the entrance to parking lot P701 and Campus Point Drive. Additionally, a full closure of northbound Campus Point Drive is in place between Medical Center Drive and Genesee Avenue. Earlier this month, driveway access to Scripps Health facilities via Voigt Drive reopened to traffic from the west only. Beginning in early September, driveway access will shift to be available from the east only, to accommodate a closure of the Voigt Drive Bridge. Stay tuned for more information.

The Voigt Drive Improvements project is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2021, which aligns with the opening of the UC San Diego Blue Line Trolley extension. For detailed information on the project, including closures and impacts to nearby medical facilities, please visit KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/MidCoastNotices.


Southbound I-5 Auxiliary Lane, Managed by Caltrans/Mid-Coast Trolley Constructors

The Interstate 5 (I-5)/Genesee Avenue Auxiliary Lane project is anticipated to be completed later this month. The new auxiliary lane will run under the Voigt Drive overpass and end at the La Jolla Village Drive off-ramp. The lane will help improve traffic flow and merging patterns on I-5, allowing motorists to remain in one lane from the time they merge onto southbound I-5 from Genesee Avenue to when they exit onto La Jolla Village Drive.


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

Night work continues along Muir College Drive and will require lane closures at the North Torrey Pines Road intersection. Traffic lanes adjacent to the intersection will be partially closed, with one lane in each direction remaining open to traffic. Construction will include a new storm drain in the northbound lane of North Torrey Pines Road and traffic signal and sidewalk improvements. Construction will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Fire Station 50, City of San Diego Project

Fire Station 50 is anticipated to open in November 2020. In the coming weeks, contractors will install elevators, continue landscaping work, and place concrete for the parking lot. Eastbound and westbound traffic along Nobel Drive may be impacted during the concrete work. Additionally, crews will complete internal finishes including lighting fixtures, HVAC controls, fire alarms, and station alerting systems.

Construction During COVID-19

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.
