Project Description

The proposed project will widen Bradley Avenue from west of Magnolia Avenue to east of Mollison Avenue, including replacing the bridge over State Route 67.

The existing freeway interchange and roadway were built over 50 years ago and can no longer accommodate the traffic demands or provide for the multi-modal needs of this growing community

 

The improved roadway will add capacity to reduce congestion and meet current and future traffic volumes and will add sidewalks and shoulders to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians to encourage a more active lifestyle.

Project Cost

The estimated total project cost for both phases is approximately $42 million and is funded primarily with TransNet (sales tax) funds and other local and federal dollars.

Construction Schedule

The Project has been divided into two construction phases to streamline development and minimize construction impacts for the public:

Phase 1 between Graves Avenue to east of Mollison Avenue is located within County of San Diego’s public right-of-way to the east of the bridge over State Route 67.

The planned work for this segment includes increasing the number of travel lanes from two lanes to four lanes, adding a dedicated center median, upgrading the old storm drain system and providing continuous dedicated bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

The work also includes, Green Streets features that would promote water conservation by installing storm water runoff treatment facilities.

Construction of Phase 1 is expected to begin in late summer 2021 and be complete late 2022

Phase 2  from west of Magnolia to Graves Avenue, includes the portions of the project that are primarily within the State of California public right-of-way under the jurisdiction of the California Department of Transportation.

Phase 2 construction is expected to begin in early 2023 and be complete late 2024.
