Road Closes for Flood Control Project

Road Closes for Flood Control Project

 

A busy street will be closed for several months starting Monday.

Elkhorn Road between Torrey Pines Drive and Jones Boulevard will be closed through March. Crews are working on storm drains in the area. The closures will be Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., but road restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day. Access to homes and businesses along the street will be maintained during the construction.

The work is part of a $30 million storm drainage improvement project that has impacted Elkhorn Road, Decatur Boulevard and Torrey Pines Drive. Crews are installing large reinforced-concrete flood control boxes underneath Elkhorn Road. They will also be putting in channel structures, pipes and other flood control infrastructure. When the whole project is finished, residents will see fewer flooded streets during heavy rains.
