A Capital Improvements Program, called Pacific Beach Drive Sidewalk Improvements Project, which is taking take place on Pacific Beach Drive between Crown Point Drive and Olney Street, will widen the south side of Pacific Beach Drive and will include the installation of asphalt paving, curb and gutter, sidewalk, accessible curb ramps and the striping of a bike lane adjacent to the curb side parking.

There is currently no bike lane striped on this section of Pacific Beach Drive.

The proximity of the Multiple Habitat Planning Area requires the City (by law) to install a temporary 12-foot-high sound wall prior to performing any construction near habitat for noise-sensitive, legally-protected birds during their breeding seasons. In addition, the City is required to hire a biological and noise monitor to ensure noise levels stay within the allowable thresholds and do not cause birds to alter their nesting behaviors.

The wall will be removed once the project is finished, or at the end of the breeding season, in this case Sept. 30, whichever comes first. This contract includes 75 working days (including sound wall installation).

The City notified the PB Planning Group as well as the residents within 300 feet of the project before they started construction.
