If you have driven past Pond 20 on Palm Avenue the past few days, you may have noticed some equipment and material being delivered as the Port of San Diego starts work on building a new wall and removing the chain link fence. The new wall on Palm Avenue will be more decorative, as well as more environmentally friendly to the area. Work will continue through March 11, with minor traffic disruptions.
The Port of San Diego will install a custom fence to improve the South San Diego site known as Pond 20, which is considered an important visual gateway to Imperial Beach.
The 950-foot fence will replace a chain-link fence. It will run within Caltrans' right-of-way along the southern perimeter of the site at 1400 Palm Avenue. The 95-acre site includes some wetlands. The site is surrounded by the Otay River to the north, Nestor Creek to the east and a channel on the west.
Pond 20 is a 95.13-acre parcel of land, located between Palm Avenue and the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge in south San Diego Bay.
It is an area that many consider to be the gateway to South County's beaches.
