The Mission Avenue Improvement Project Downtown continues forward! On Monday morning, January 6, 2014, construction activities will move west to the two block area between Ditmar Street and Coast Highway. Temporary traffic control devices and barricades will be placed along the north side of Mission Avenue from Ditmar Street to Coast Highway. The following day, the contractor will begin the process of removing the sidewalk and the roadway. Restaurants, shops, and businesses will remain open, and pedestrian access will remain at all times. Construction in this area is expected to be complete by mid-March 2014.
Business patrons of the restaurants and shops along the Mission Avenue Project corridor should expect parallel parking to be eliminated during construction. Parking and pedestrian access should be taken either from Pier View Way (the block north) or Seagaze Drive (the block south). Traffic on Mission Avenue will continue to be one-way westbound, and walkways to affected businesses will remain open at all times.
After this segment is complete, the project will move to the east between Horne Street and Ditmar Street on the south side of Mission Avenue. For more information, please see the project webpage: http://www.ci.oceanside.ca.us/gov/dev/eng/maip.asp. The City will provide periodic updates on the Mission Avenue Improvement Project Downtown throughout the construction period until completion, scheduled for mid-June 2014.
