Solana Beach moving ahead on Marine View Avenue improvements

By Marlena Medford

The city is moving forward with plans to improve Marine View Avenue on the east side of Solana Beach.

The project focuses on the east side of Marine View Avenue, between San Andres Drive and Solana Drive. The adjacent upslope in this area is eroding, causing sand to wash out into the street after rainstorms, which is affecting the storm drain. The city has been using temporary silt fences to collect that sediment, but this project will offer a permanent solution. The project calls for the entire slope face to be re-graded, for the installation of an irrigation system and the installation of a 115-linear-foot retaining wall.

This portion of the street also lacks a sidewalk, which will be added. Pavement on the street will also be repaired, and a decomposed granite path will be added on the west side.

During its May 25 meeting, the City Council unanimously voted to put this project out to bid, and hopes to be able to award a construction contract by July. The project budget is about $419,000, but the final bid will determine the exact amount.

The city has had these design plans in place for a number of years, but held off on construction until after the recent completion of the Interstate 5 and Lomas Santa Fe interchange project.
