SUBJECT:    CONSTRUCTION ALERT Miramar Street and Athena Circle Improvements

Project Description/Location:

The Miramar Street and Athena Circle Improvements project will begin construction in early January 2018, with an expected completion of November 2018. The project will create a vehicular connection between Miramar Street and Athena Circle and provide an internal vehicular campus route between the Mesa Housing neighborhood and the Science Research Park on the East Campus. The project scope includes the widening of the Miramar Street from Regents Road intersection to the Nuevo West Housing project. Utility infrastructure improvements will be made to support existing and future housing development at Mesa Housing, including water, sewer, reclaimed water, storm drain, gas, electrical and telecommunications.

Immediate Street Traffic, Bicycle Lane and Pedestrian Impacts:

Access to the UC San Diego Medical Center will be detoured to Health Sciences Drive during construction. Pedestrian and bicycle paths of travel will remain open, but will be modified periodically throughout construction to minimize impacts. Signage will be posted as construction areas are modified.

Parking Lot P782:
P782 will remain open during construction and will remain accessible from Athena Circle. There will be intermittent impacts to specific parking spaces located in the southwestern portion of the parking lot during construction.
