After a summer break, the City of San Diego project to replace and rehabilitate aging water and sewer infrastructure has started up again, leading to road closures throughout Pacific Beach – specifically Ingraham Street and bridge, along with other side streets in Crown Point.

The Pacific Beach pipeline south project, which began July 2016 and is scheduled to conclude October 2018, is replacing approximately 7.6 miles of water main and about 1.6 miles of sewer main in the Midway District-Pacific Highway Corridor and Mission Bay areas.

The project will also demolish the Pacific Beach Reservoir, which was built in 1908 and removed from service more than 20 years ago.

This project will contribute towards the city’s ongoing program that mandates the replacement of all aging and deteriorating cast iron water mains currently in service. It will:

- Replace associated water services, fire hydrants, curb ramps, and traffic control devices;

- Use best management practices to control erosion and protect storm drain inlets;

- Resurface streets impacted by project construction activities; and

- Install new accessibility curb ramps.

These improvements are consistent with goals set forth in the city’s Climate Action Plan, by maintaining water supplies and services that support the region.

Residents who live in the affected areas may stay informed about the construction activities and impacts for both the water and sewer improvements by signing up for emailed project updates at sandiego.gov/cip.
