Genesee Avenue closure and pedestrian bridge demo begin March 31

Courtesy of SANDAG:


In late March and early April, crews will begin the process to demolish the Genesee Avenue pedestrian bridge at Executive Square. During the March 31 weekend, crews will install and re-stripe temporary pedestrian crossing signals. During the following weekend of April 7, crews will demolish the pedestrian bridge. Both weekends will require a full street closure of Genesee Avenue, from La Jolla Village Drive to Executive Drive, to complete this work.

Closure and work hours are scheduled from:

  • 9 p.m. on Friday, March 31, through 5 a.m. on Monday, April 3
  • 9 p.m. on Friday, April 7, through 5 a.m. on Monday, April 10

Major construction activities include:

  • Permanent removal of the pedestrian bridge at Executive Square and Genesee Avenue.
  • Installation and re-striping of temporary pedestrian crossing signals at Executive Square and Genesee Avenue.
  • Trenching and street excavations for utility relocation.

Crews will minimize impacts to neighboring residents and businesses as much as possible.

To cross Genesee Avenue during installation of temporary crossing signals and removal of the pedestrian bridge at Executive Square, pedestrians should use the crosswalks located at La Jolla Village Drive or Executive Drive.

Work areas: See attached diagram/map.


On Monday, April 3, through Friday, April 7, 2017, the Ocean Beach Bike Path will be closed for San Diego River Bridge Double Track construction and ground improvements. Please follow signage to detour the bike path via Pacific Coast Highway and Taylor Street and use extra caution when traveling near the work area.

Crews will continue to minimize construction impacts to the extent possible.

*Please note that construction schedules are subject to change.
