Work Continues on Embarcadero Revamp
The Port of San Diego on Friday released its most recent update on the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan, a large-scale undertaking to revamp San Diego’s bayfront.
Beginning today, all eastbound traffic on Broadway will cease between North Harbor Drive and Pacific Highway for the next three months while a new median and roadway are constructed. One westbound lane will remain open.
North Harbor Drive, which is being relocated to the east in an effort to expand open space along the waterfront, will see travel restricted to one northbound lane in coming months as the new road is constructed. Southbound traffic will not be affected.
Phase 1 of the Visionary Plan is expected to be completed by late 2013, at a total cost of $28.6 million, with improvements spanning from the B Street Pier to the former Navy Pier. Businesses and museums in the affected areas remain open during construction.
