The Morena Pump Station will be located adjacent to the wastewater pipeline that currently conveys flows to the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Morena Pump Station will divert 32 million gallons per day (mgd) of wastewater to the North City facilities for purification.
The pump station will be constructed at the southwest corner of Sherman Street and Custer Street off Morena Boulevard, just north of Interstate 8 and east of Interstate 5. Offsite utility relocation work and utility construction work will be ongoing in the streets around the new pump station.
This project also includes ongoing work on Friars Road between Napa Street and Sea World Drive. For the safety of the construction team and the community, the westbound lanes in this section of Friars Road are currently permitted to be closed until February 2023. An eastbound vehicle lane and eastbound and westbound bicycle lanes remain accessible.
In the next phase of traffic control, westbound traffic will be open and the eastbound lanes on Friars Road will be closed. Construction on Friars Road is anticipated to be complete in July 2023 at which time all traffic control on Friars Road will be removed and the road will be open to all traffic.
