Undergrounding complete along Camino Del Mar

The City of Del Mar recently announced that SDG&E has completed undergrounding of utility lines along the east side of Camino del Mar and has removed all previously existing overhead power lines.

Seventeen poles and 3,785 linear feet of power, cable and telephone lines were removed as a part of this project, resulting in improved views and safety for City of Del Mar and City of San Diego residents. A pole removal ceremony commemorating the completion of this project will be held on Feb. 28 at 10 a.m. when the final remaining poll will be removed by SDG&E crews. The ceremony will last approximately one-half hour.

The pole removal ceremony will be held on the northern part of the sidewalk in front of the Stratford Inn Del Mar at 710 Camino del Mar. The Stratford Inn has offered to make their underground parking garage available to participants at no charge, and those with limited mobility may make use of the topside spaces available for guest check in. Parking is also available on Stratford or at the City Hall Parking Lot. Light refreshments will be provided by SDG&E.
