Pacific Highway Corridor Road Closures Scheduled in April
SAN DIEGO - The City of San Diego announced today that it will be closing lanes in the Pacific Highway Corridor over two weekends in April to accommodate a bridge demolition project.
There will be traffic control for a one lane detour for through traffic in the affected areas. Additional road closures during the two weekends include:
The closure will enable contractors to begin the demolition of the Consolidated Truck Road Bridge. Work will take place continuously both day and night during the road closures and construction noise can be expected throughout the duration of the project, which is expected to be completed by June 1, 2005.
The Consolidated Truck Road Bridge crosses Pacific Highway from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWAR) to the east to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot to the west. The bridge, which was built in 1942 for private use by Consolidated Aircraft, has not been used in many decades. The bridge was rated seismically deficient by CalTrans and listed for mandatory retrofit or demolition per the Local Bridge Safety Retrofit Program. Demolition of the bridge was recommended since the bridge has no public use applications, and it has never been used by the public.
For more information about the Consolidated Truck Road Bridge demolition, please contact Adrienne Turner, Project Manager, with the City's Community and Economic Development Department at (619) 533-5377.
