Georgia Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project 

 

 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Constructed in 1914, the Georgia Street Bridge and the adjacent retaining walls are designated as a historic landmark. This project will provide required seismic retrofitting and rehabilitation of the bridge and retaining walls. For more information about this project, visit the project web page.

HERE’S WHAT’S HAPPENING

Georgia Street Bridge Anticipated Schedule:

There is no night work scheduled to occur this week or next. However, this may change if weather, safety or unforeseen circumstances make night work unavoidable. If night work is needed in the coming days and weeks, a construction advisory will be sent out to notify you. The project team understands that night work and noise can be disruptive and thanks you for your patience when night work does occur.

The anticipated timeframe to complete the restoration of the historic Georgia Street Bridge is Spring 2018. This project was delayed from its earlier anticipated completion timeframe due to the unusually inclement weather during Winter 2016 and Spring 2017, as well as other circumstances that have caused some additional work.

Additional Area Projects: 

There are additional commercial as well as City of San Diego construction projects occurring in the surrounding areas. Below is information on other City projects that may impact Hillcrest and North Park in the coming days and weeks.

University Avenue Pipeline Replacement Project: 

The City of San Diego’s University Avenue Pipeline Replacement Project is an ongoing, multi-year Capital Improvements Program (CIP) project to replace water mains in the community. Intermittent water service outages are scheduled to take place in the areas shown on the map in blue, during the dates of October 23 through October 27.*
