Construction Updates

Major Water Main Construction Coming to Lake Murray Blvd.

The City of San Diego will be starting the construction of a major water main along Lake Murray Blvd and 70th Street in the next few months.  The work within La Mesa extends from Alvarado Water Treatment Plant near Kiowa Drive south across I-8 to the City border at Saranac Street.  This will likely result in traffic delays during construction.  The City of La Mesa staff has been coordinating with San Diego on this project and will provide more details upcoming weeks as they become available.  

N. Spring Street Pedestrian Improvements Project

This project includes adding new sidewalks and bridge safety railing between the north end of Spring Street and Center Street, accessible pedestrian ramps with high-visibility crosswalks, signage for a bike route to be shared with vehicular traffic, as well as improvements to traffic signal equipment. This project is mostly complete with the final work expected to be completed July 2019.

Sewer Replacement Project

Sewer replacement projects will be starting on several streets including Pine Street, Edenvale Avenue, Altamont Road and University Avenue.  The work will be completed within three to four months from the start of construction.

The West La Mesa Project, which includes work along University Avenue, is approximately 90 percent complete and is expected to reach final completion by the end of summer 2019.

MacArthur Park Phase I started construction in April 2019. Phase I work will be primarily in the entryway, which includes the pathways and landscaping.
