San Elijo Road Repair and Lodgepole Removal
The City of San Marcos will conduct black top repairs and slurry coating on San Elijo Road in April or May. It’s expected that repairs will take place from San Elijo Hills Towncenter to San Elijo Hills Fire Station.
The City of San Marcos will also be removing portions of lodgepole railing/fencing due to traffic and safety concerns. There have been numerous traffic accidents in San Marcos involving lodgepoles penetrating vehicle compartments (San Elijo Life has seen pictures of poles acting like spears inside of cars). To reduce risk or serious injury and liability to the city and San Elijo Hills Association the city has decided to remove and not replace with other type of railing or fencing. The removal area will consist of all portions of Melrose Drive, portions of San Elijo Road. Railings against roadway will be removed except for slower speed areas (Questhaven Road). Railings on the back of sidewalk/trail or behind existing guard rail will be left in place.
