La Jolla Village Drive at Genesee set to close for a week

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Intermittent partial closures are currently in place along Genesee Avenue in support of Trolley bridge construction.

The ongoing construction of the Mid-Coast Trolley extension will require closures at La Jolla Village Drive and Genesee Avenue for a week starting on Friday night.

Crews are installing pre-cast girders, which are large beams used to support the Trolley bridge. The girders will be placed on top of the columns to build the viaduct, which is the bridge structure that will carry the Trolley along its route. Crews have placed girders in five intersections along Genesee Avenue; this will be the sixth installation of girders in a series of seven intersections.

“At the end of day, this is going to be a tremendous project that is going to connect a long length of San Diego, so it will be--I think, a fantastic improvement for the area, providing transport in this area that is growing and densifying,” John Haggerty, Porter Director-Mid-Coast Trolley said.
