Coastal crosswalks under construction

Post Date:01/04/2024 6:00 PM

Over the past two months, we've been putting together a weekly construction map to keep you updated about city projects and help you avoid areas where road work could cause traffic delays. One of the projects you'll see on the map is improving six crosswalks on Carlsbad Boulevard, one of the hot spots on our injury collision heat map.

We've already completed the improvements on a crosswalk in the north part of Carlsbad Boulevard, in front of the Army and Navy Academy. This video gives you an idea of what the upgrades look like.

You might remember that we upgraded crosswalks along the coast several years ago. This next round of improvements will build on the safety features already there:

In addition to the improvements described above, the five remaining crosswalks will feature flashing lights in the pavement to alert drivers when someone wants to cross.

Construction hours are Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The project should be done in time for summer.

  • Please remember to slow down in construction zones 
  • Stay alert for crews as well as people walking, biking and driving in the area

Thank you for your patience as we make these improvements. Don't forget to check the map each week to see where other road work is taking place. Keep in mind that it only shows city projects, not private projects or work by local utilities.
