FOLLOWUP: SDOT says Beach Drive repaving will resume

1:59 PM: We have finally heard back from SDOT about the incomplete repaving project on Beach Drive. A little over two weeks ago, we reported on the notices promising that work April 2nd-6th would include not just the repair of the bumpiest patch at Beach/Carroll, but also resurfacing between Andover and Douglas. But by the end of the week, as shown above, only the Beach/Carroll repairs had been done. We inquired with SDOT, and spokesperson Karen Westing has replied to explain, “Latest from our Maintenance Ops team is that bad weather prevented crews from completing the work on schedule but once this latest round of fronts clears, they will be out there to complete the project. They are working now on rescheduling.”

TUESDAY UPDATE: “No parking” signs are back up in the area, for today through Friday, though there’s no sign of work yet.

    I heard SDOT was planning on making a one lane road.

      Don’t even joke. No, there is no rechannelization proposal here … most of BDrive is one lane each way already.

    I thought this patch job was a joke.  The road seems worse than ever.  There is still a pretty big dip right in front of La Rustica.

    City roads are a joke… more like off-roading.  There’s no excuse when we have such a large tax base.

    Would be great to see North Delridge repaved between the Playfield and the bridge, all of the utilities hookups by the new development has ruined the road.

Sorry, comment time is over.
