Parking opens up on the 101 as construction in Solana Beach continues ahead of schedule

By Claire Harlin

Parking is slowly opening back up along Highway 101 in Solana Beach, and contractors are still committing to wrapping up the entire Westside Improvement Project before the San Diego County Fair opens on June 8, city officials said on Jan. 23

That culmination date is four months ahead of the scheduled October completion, said city manager David Ott, adding that the contractor recommitted to a rain-or-shine June completion during a public town hall meeting on Jan. 23.

For the next few weeks, traffic will remain in one lane heading southbound on Highway 101 and northbound will remain two lanes. The diagonal parking that is now open is a new feature for the 101 and is only temporarily striped at locations with no active construction planned until the end of the project, when permanent stripes will be painted. City planner Mo Sammak said striping and other final touches may be happening within a week of the opening of the county fair.

Sammak also said Feb. 4 will bring some traffic challenges for locals, as southbound traffic will shift to the median for a day of pavement grinding.

“That one day will be pretty inconvenient for the adjacent property owners,” said Sammak. “After that one-day operation the contractor will have to go back and do some underground work, some curb work and remaining sidewalk work … There will be some inconveniences and construction in front of properties but those will be on a periodic basis, not a continuous operation as it is on that one day, Feb. 4.”

Recent completions in addition to diagonal parking include paving the southbound traffic lane and parking areas, and installing traffic signal bases at Estrella and Cliff Streets on the west side of the 101.
