Access slowly being restored in Solana Beach Highway 101 construction

By Claire Harlin

Access to businesses along Highway 101 in Solana Beach may have seemed even more hindered in the last few weeks than any other phase of the city’s ongoing revitalization construction project so far. However, storm drain construction should wrap up at the end of this month, according to the city, and access is being slowly restored.

The City of Solana Beach estimates that Estrella Street will reopen soon after base paving wraps up around Nov. 16. However, it may be closed periodically for rain and storms through the end of the month. Cliff Street is expected to open in mid-December, when water service connections are completed. Until then, local access to businesses on Cliff is possible through Acacia Avenue.

Sidewalk construction on the west side of Highway 101 is scheduled to begin mid-December, and it will take place in very small sections because it’s expected to inconvenience businesses directly in front of store fronts. It will not be until sidewalk construction wraps up that parking along the 101 will be restored.

So far, the city has completed median tree planting and decorative concrete installation, and is in the middle of base paving and construction of median lights and pedestrian ramps. Curb pouring will begin on Dec. 3.

The city is publishing a twice-monthly newsletter to give the community updates on the schedule and progress of the project. To see the newsletter, sign up for the city’s mailing list at or visit the City Hall kiosk, located at 635 South Highway 101.
