SUBJECT: || CONSTRUCTION ALERT UPDATE - Scripps Institution of
Oceanography, Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and
Modeling (MESOM) Laboratory and the New NOAA SWFC Laboratory|
The Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling (MESOM)
Laboratory on the Scripps Institution of Oceanography campus, is a new 3
story, 41,000 GSF building that started construction on August 15, 2011.
This new building will take the place of Parking Lots P012 and P013
adjacent to Isaacs Hall along Biological Grade Drive. Completion of the
project is scheduled for October 16, 2012. During that time Biological
Grade at La Jolla Shores Drive will be open, but all should be aware
that many large trucks will be using the La Jolla Shores Drive exit.
Immediate Street Impacts:
Construction traffic for the MESOM project will continue to use
Biological Grade at La Jolla Shores Drive. Due to an unexpected
condition, Biological Grade will continue to have one lane closed
through October 28, with periodic interruptions to the traffic flow in
November and December due to MESOM construction material deliveries
between 3:30 PM - 7:00 PM. Detours and signage will be provided
directing both vehicles and pedestrians around the impacted area.
Flagmen will also be present to direct traffic. Signage illustrating
alternate paths of pedestrian travel will be provided. Updates will
continue to be provided throughout the construction period.
