Rancho Santa Fe Road makeover to continue through summer

Motorists should expect delays from La Mirada Drive to Security Place

Rancho Santa Fe Road makeover to continue through summer

After a brief construction pause, work on the $3 million Rancho Santa Fe Road makeover will continue through the summer.

Beginning the week of Monday, April 17, north and southbound traffic will be reduced to one lane along sections of Rancho Santa Fe Road as follows:

  • April 17 to April 21:          La Mirada Drive to Linda Vista Drive
  • April 24 to April 28:          Linda Vista Drive to 1st Street
  • May 1 to May 19:             1st Street to Security Place
  • May 22 to May 24:           La Mirada Drive to Security Place

Delays should be expected during peak hours and prolonged lane closures will affect normal traffic. Heavy equipment will be on the street within constructions zones and flagmen, where needed, will be directing traffic to ease congestion. Although two-way traffic will be maintained, traffic delays are anticipated and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes during construction. Commuters should plan ahead by leaving early to arrive at their destinations on time.

During construction, businesses will remain open and work will be coordinated to minimize obstruction to shopping center access. Residents and businesses directly affected by the street restoration will receive advanced notice of work.

“We appreciate continued patience from motorists, businesses and schools during these important repairs,” said City Manager Jack Griffin. “While this work will create temporary inconveniences getting around town, these much needed repairs pave the way for lasting improvements.”

As crews work to finish these major improvements, motorists can continue to expect intermittent southbound and northbound single lane closures through June. Delays in the schedule may occur due to inclement weather.

With an anticipated completion of summer 2017, the major facelift is restoring the roadway and extending the life of the driving surfaces along Rancho Santa Fe Road from Lakeridge Drive to Descanso Avenue. Some portions of the roadway require pavement removal and replacement, while other segments need surface grinding prior to the final pavement overlay.

“Traffic flow is important to our residents and keeping city streets in good condition keeps motorists moving and improves overall traffic safety,” said Griffin.

For more information, updated schedules and anticipated traffic impacts, visit www.san-marcos.net/roadwork or call Associate Civil Engineer Isaac Etchamendy at (760) 744-1050, ext. 3273. Traffic alerts will also be published to the city’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
