SUBJECT:    CONSTRUCTION ALERT - NOAA La Jolla Lab Replacement (Scripps
Institution of Oceanography Neighborhood)

Project Description/Location:

The NOAA La Jolla Laboratory Replacement Project will construct an approximately 124,000 gross square foot facility in addition to under structure parking for 202 vehicles. The replacement facility will house a staff of approximately 300 currently housed at NOAA's existing Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) La Jolla Shores and Torrey Pines Court Facilities. The new facility will consist of laboratory, office and support spaces. The project is located in the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Neighborhood bordering La Jolla Shores Drive and Shellback Way (adjacent to Parking Lot P014).

Vehicular traffic around the site and on adjacent streets will continue to be impacted at times through November 15, 2011 to accommodate construction activities and utility installations. There will be occasions when La Jolla Shores Drive will have only one traffic lane open. Pedestrian sidewalks directly adjacent to the project site will be impacted. Flagmen will direct traffic and pedestrians during those times of limited accessibility. Additional alerts will be issued throughout the construction period as needed.

Immediate Impacts Update
Beginning April 25, 2011 and continuing until November 15, 2011, the entrance to parking lot P014 from La Jolla Shores Drive will be closed, however, access to P014 will be available from the south, from Downwind Way to Shellback Way.
