This work will require traffic controls, including installation of temporary barricades along the west side of southbound I-5. The vegetation removal work is anticipated to last approximately two months. Upon completion of all construction activities required in support of the Mid-Coast Trolley project in this location, vegetation will be planted.
Once complete, the Mid-Coast Trolley project will extend service from Old Town to the University City community, serving the VA Medical Center, UC San Diego, and the busy commercial and residential districts along Genesee Avenue. Major construction work began in 2016, with service expected to begin in 2021.
