  • Coastal Campus Entrance Design Approved:  The Navy presented a rendering of a new three-way signalized intersection design for the Naval Base Coronado Coastal Campus at the Naval Complexes meeting this week. The design, which was approved by the California Department of Transportation, includes a 10-foot-wide pedestrian crossing from the Coastal Campus to the Bayshore Bikeway. The Navy said the design eliminates queuing on state Route 75 with entry control points and turn pockets that keep vehicles on the base side. Construction on the $1 billion, 1.5-million-square-foot naval installation that will include SEAL training facilities, support buildings and classrooms is planned to begin in September.

  • Planned SDG&E Outage:  A planned power outage by SDG&E has been scheduled for Saturday, April 1, at 8 a.m. for up to 10 hours to replace a switch in the area, weather permitting. The outage will affect the traffic signal at state Route 75 and Tarawa Road. The City has contacted the California Department of Transportation to coordinate monitoring of the signal during the outage.
  • Spreckels Park Restroom:  The Spreckels Park Restroom project includes two temporary portable restroom trailers that will be used instead of the many small portable toilets typically in service during peak park-usage months, April to September. The City Council recently approved designs submitted by the Cultural Arts Commission to wrap the trailers with colorful images from the past. One of the portable restroom trailers, near Seventh Street, and will have the carousel such as the one that operated in Tent City, affordable summer camping at the Hotel del Coronado, beginning in 1915. The carousel wrap includes original signage, a historic photograph and a narrative. The second trailer is 28 feet long, is adjacent to the new permanent bathroom on Sixth, and will feature historic Coronado Rail Road cars from the 1880s. The design includes passengers from an era gone by. If you look closely, you may be able to name some of them.
