SUBJECT: || CONSTRUCTION ALERT – Regents Road / Eastgate Mall Intersection and Athena Way Access to UCSD Medical Center – Temporary Closure|
The City of San Diego is currently working on a project to widen Regents
Road between Genesee Avenue and Executive Drive from a two-lane street
to a four-lane street with new bike lanes. Regents Road provides access
to UC San Diego’s East Campus including the Medical Center, parking
facilities, graduate housing facilities, and the UC San Diego Science
Research Park. The Regents Road project scope includes final asphalt
paving of the Regents Rd / Eastgate Mall intersection, for which there
will be a short-term closure of the Athena Way entry to UC San Diego
Medical Center – La Jolla.
Immediate Street Traffic, and Pedestrian Impacts:
Effective Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 6:00am through Sunday, February
11, 2018 at 12:00am midnight, north and southbound lanes of Regents Road
will be closed from Executive Drive to Health Sciences Drive. During
this construction activity, the Athena Way entrance into the UC San
Diego Medical Center and Science Research Park will be temporarily
closed. Vehicular traffic traveling northbound on Regents Road and
westbound traffic on Eastgate Mall will be detoured to the Health
Sciences Drive entrance and signage will be posted at the detour. Access
from Campus Point Drive and Genesee will be unaffected. Ambulance access
to the Emergency Department will remain available at all times.
Pedestrians and bicyclists will be allowed to cross at the Eastgate and
Regents intersection using two of the four existing crosswalks.
