To improve the traffic capacity and relieve heavy drive-time congestion, road construction has begun on Palomar Airport Road between Armada Drive and Paseo del Norte (just west of Legoland and south of the flower fields).

Administered by the City of Carlsbad, the project will provide an additional westbound through lane and a deceleration lane for a future driveway.

Sierra Pacific West, Inc., the contractor, has kept all lanes open (except the bike lane) and placed concrete K-rail blocks at the northern edge of the westbound number-three lane. The total project cost is $961,240. The expected completion date is March 2010.

Looking on a map, that distance is only about 2000 feet. Less than half a mile. Actually, it SHOULDN'T have to cost in excess of a million bucks. But few public works projects now have a price tag below a million. In this case, it isn't the whole street being done, just one lane.
