From SDG&E, Construction in nearby communities:

Underground construction activities along Pomerado Road in the community of Scripps Ranch are scheduled to begin Monday, June 19. Current construction hours for this area are 8:30am – 3:30pm, Monday – Friday. We will begin implementing traditional traffic control efforts near Marshall Middle School. This would include flaggers, with one lane of traffic and signage encouraging motorists to use alternative routes and alerting them of delays along Pomerado Road. Should this prove to be problematic, SDG&E and its contractors will revise the traffic control plans to implement ideas from the Scripps Ranch Civic Association to have one lane of continuous travel open to eastbound traffic and divert west bound traffic away from Pomerado Road. However, this is not an ideal plan as eastbound traffic would be required to drive on the north (westbound) lane to accommodate construction on the south side of Pomerado.

Traffic flow and conditions will be closely monitored throughout construction and mitigation measures or alternative traffic control plans will be implemented, when feasible. SDG&E and its contractors looked very closely at traffic plans that would implement two lanes of traffic to allow for continuous traffic flow in both directions. In fact, we hired two traffic control companies to study whether two-way traffic could be accommodated using various lane widths of 10-foot, 11-foot and 12-foot, in lieu of the standard 14-foot lane widths. These options were ruled out for overriding safety concerns for the flaggers, construction crews and commuters. Moreover, this configuration would have severely limited construction work areas, adding significant time to the overall project.

Construction activities will take place in phases. This means that construction activities along Pomerado Road and the along approved route will often occur intermittently and all construction activities required in a certain area will not be completed concurrently. Also, there will be multiple construction locations and activities taking place simultaneously, with work hours, traffic control measures, and noise restrictions for each area dictated by the City of San Diego Development Services Department.

We encourage commuters to seek alternative routes to Pomerado Road during construction.

Work on the overhead sections of the project in the Torrey Hills and Stonebridge communities will begin on or near July. Additional notifications will be sent prior to the commencement of those activities.

Construction schedules and locations are subject to change due to compliance requirements, inclement weather, or other unforeseen circumstances.
