Calle de la Plata from Avenida de la Playa to Paseo Dorado is closed for the next four weeks to through-traffic to facilitate the installation of a new sewer main as part of Avenida de la Playa Infrastructure Replacement Project and Sewer and Water Group Job 809. The job began March 30.

Fencing will be installed just south of the driveway of the condominium building at 2137-2147 Avenida de la Playa. Residents of this building will have garage access.

The fencing will extend to north of the driveway of 8023 Calle de la Plata.

When the work extends south of the fenced area, construction crews will work with residents to provide driveway access.

The fencing will block access to the alley from Calle de la Plata. The alley access from El Paseo Grande will remain open. Sidewalks will also be open to allow for pedestrian traffic.

Crews will work Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Job 809 is a topic of contention to several business owners in the Avenida de la Playa area of La Jolla. The extent of repairs, they've said, is drastically cutting into profits amid the swell of traffic and dearth of parking spaces.

The contractor is also performing curb and gutter repair on St. Louis Terrace from Viking Way to Little Street. The job should be completed by April 5. Normal work hours of 7 a.m. to 4 p.m will apply.

No Parking signs will be posted at least 72 hours in advance of the construction. Paving of the street will take place by the Memorial Day Weekend.

Repairs in the area began last September and are expected to continue through Memorial Day.
