SUBJECT:    CONSTRUCTION ALERT Gilman Drive Public Sewer Improvements

Project Description/Location:

The Gilman Drive Public Sewer Improvement project will begin construction towards the end of October 2017, with expected completion by August 2018. The project will provide the necessary additional sanitary sewer capacity required to support the proposed UC San Diego Long Range Development Plan and the current Capital Improvement Program. The project includes conversion of the City of San Diego sewer main that runs under the VA hospital parcel to the UC San Diego sewer system and construction of a new parallel UC San Diego sewer main on the southern boundary of campus adjacent to La Jolla Village Drive, and also extend a new parallel 24 public sewer main south of La Jolla Village Drive in Gilman Drive. To minimize disruption and maximize safety, a micro-tunnel method will be employed in which pits are excavated at intervals and connected with piping tunnels thus avoiding open linear trenches.

Immediate Street Traffic, Bike Lane and Pedestrian Impacts:

There will be periods in time where traffic control will be set up in La Jolla Village Drive to allow contractor access to UC San Diego property west of the Interstate 5 at the southbound La Jolla Village Drive off-ramp, and the westbound Gilman Drive off-ramp from southbound La Jolla Village Drive.

There will be construction activity in the center of Gilman Drive south of La Jolla Village Drive. Driving lanes and bike lanes are anticipated to remain open during project construction.
