13th Street Project underway as Project Starts today at 13th Street & Grove Avenue. 13th Street and Grove Avenue Construction began today. Construction is part of larger 13th Street Project to Redo Street from End to End.
This project at 13th Street and Grove will
feature handicapped ramps, crosswalk at all four corners and take street down
to single lane in each direction and have a pike path on each side of street.
There will also be a median in the middle of the street for cars to turn into
before make left or right hand turns.
This is just part of the larger project that will be taking all of 13th Street down to a single lane in each direction from Iris Avenue on the south side of 13th Street up to Cypress Avenue and 13th Street on the north side of the project.
Besides a single lane in each direction. the project features a median in the middle of the street for cars that have to turn right or left and a bike path on each side of the street and space for cars to park next to the curb.
In an interview with Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina earlier in December he said he was
very excited about this project. He was especially excited about the safety it would bring to all the school children and mothers with children that had to cross 13th Street to get to school everyday.
In speaking with Paul Macias, Construction Inspector with NV5 and Gesus Luna, Foreman of PAL Engineering I was able to learn that the project at the intersection of
13th and Grove is expected to take 10 days to 2 weeks depending on the weather.
I was told by Gesus that there will be a handicapped ramp at all 4 corners of the intersection and crosswalks at all 4 corners as well.
