Getting You On Track

The Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) 1 projects including, Mid-Coast, Elvira to Morena Double Tracking (EMDT), and San Diego River Bridge (SDRDT), are moving into final design and construction phases.

Updates & Impacts

  • Temporary Realignment of Rose Canyon Bike Path and I-5 Impacts: Starting June 13, 2018, a southern portion of the Rose Canyon Bike Path will be temporarily relocated to the west side of the train tracks, east of Interstate 5 and north of Santa Fe Street, while crews construct a new, permanent path. The interim path will connect the north end of Santa Fe Street to about 1,000 feet north of State Route 52. A temporary realignment of the northern portion of the bike path is also in place, rerouting to a protected, temporary two-lane bikeway located on the outside shoulder of the northbound I-5 off-ramp. Sections of the permanent path will be reopened as they are completed. View additional information.

The Project

The project will extend Trolley service from the Santa Fe Depot in Downtown San Diego to the University City community, serving major activity centers such as Old Town, the University of California San Diego (UCSD), and Westfield UTC.

 

This is a Federally Funded Project and we are requesting bids from DBE and SB Subcontractors. The overall DBE project goal is 11.3%.  The goal provides an estimated $150 million in awards to DBE firms.
