January 6th, 2015 by Megan

The City of San Diego is currently overseeing a project to replace 4.33 miles

(22,722 feet) of pipeline within the University Heights, Hillcrest and North Park communities. The University Ave. pipeline project is part of a citywide initiative to replace over 3,250 miles of water pipelines that in some areas are over 100 years old.

Along with providing safe, clean drinking water the project will also improve pedestrian curb ramps to facilitate access with persons of disabilities. City street surfaces will be reconstructed with slurry seal, paving and striping as needed with vegetation and landscaping within the impacted areas as well.

In late 2014 businesses along 5th Ave. in Hillcrest experienced the first wave of construction in the neighborhood. Other areas that will be impacted include businesses along University Ave., Park Blvd., Robinson Ave., and the remainder of 5th Ave.
