CAMPUS RESOURCE PLANNING INITIATIVES
July 1, 2014
A series of regional transportation projects will be occurring at and around UC San Diego over the next few years, transforming the way we access campus. In an effort to keep the campus community up-to-date on these projects and related impacts, we have launched the “On The Go” website at http://onthego.ucsd.edu.
The site offers important details on each transportation project and will be updated in a timely manner. By working closely with our regional partners, we will share valuable information and resources that can help minimize the impact of construction on students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors.
The Gilman Transit Center is the first in this series of regional transportation projects. Construction is already underway with completion expected this September. Other projects include:
A major expansion to the Genesee Avenue Bridge and Interstate 5 interchange with enhanced bicycle features;
A new bridge across Interstate 5 at Gilman Drive to better connect east and west campuses for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians;
The Light Rail Transit (“Trolley”) project with two UC San Diego stations;
And improvements to Voigt Drive and Campus Point Drive to accommodate future Direct Access Ramps from Interstate 5 for high occupancy vehicles.
These projects will greatly benefit our campus by easing street traffic and parking demands, improving air quality, and better connecting the university with the greater San Diego community.
We encourage you to visit the “On The Go” website and check back for regular updates. We also will continue to send out construction notices as well as notices regarding any temporary interruptions in utility services.
If you have questions, comments or feedback, please email OnTheGo@ucsd.edu.
