Mission Avenue Improvement Project Launches

October 24, 2013

As part of the Oceanside Downtown Renaissance, the City of Oceanside announces the start of a long-awaited community enhancement project, the “Mission Avenue Improvements Project Downtown.” This project began in April of 2009, when the City’s Redevelopment Agency started the process to enhance the gateway into Downtown Oceanside.

Mission Avenue between Horne Street and Coast Highway is scheduled for a renovation beginning October 24, 2013, and ending early summer 2014. The project will convert Mission Avenue, a four lane two-way street to a two lane, one-way westbound street. Seagaze Drive, one block south of Mission Avenue, will be converted to a one-way eastbound route, creating a one-way couplet system in the Downtown area. Other project components include widened sidewalks, new landscaping, new street lighting, and enhanced pedestrian and bicycle facilities.

Starting, Thursday, October 24, 2013, the two-day process to convert Seagaze Drive to a one-way eastbound street will begin. The one-way conversion will take place in two phases. On October 24, 2013, the westbound lane on Seagaze Drive will be closed for removal/replacement of the signing and roadway striping. The southbound lane on Clementine Street (between Mission and Seagaze) will be closed for removal/replacement of the signing and roadway striping.

On Friday, October 25, 2013, the eastbound lane on Seagaze Drive will be closed for removal/replacement of the signing and roadway striping. The northbound lane on Clementine Street (between Mission and Seagaze) will be closed for removal/replacement of the signing and roadway striping. When the work is complete on October 25, 2013, Seagaze Drive will open as a one-way street eastbound, and this segment of Clementine Street will be one-way northbound.

Mission Avenue will remain a two-way street until the conversion to a one-way street now scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 12, 2013. Mission Avenue will remain open to traffic throughout the construction phase. For more information,  CLICK HERE.
