In addition to crosswalk installations, this week crews began building footings for streetlights  between Plaza and 13th streets. Next week, that work will continue between Plaza and 15th streets on the west side of Camino del Mar. Crosswalks will be extended across the inside lanes of northbound Camino del Mar at 14th, 13th and 12th streets.

Also for the week beginning March 4, construction activities will continue to concentrate on the east side of the 1100 block of Camino del Mar. 

For a project designed to improve pedestrian safety, new and reconfigured crosswalks are a key component.

This week, workers set pavers for crosswalks on the east side of Camino del Mar at 14th, 13th and 12th streets. 
The Downtown Streetscape Project on Camino del Mar will improve all crosswalks between 15th and 9th streets and add a brand new crosswalk, with pedestrian-activated flashing lights, across the highway at 10th Street. 

Crosswalks at 13th and 11th streets will be expanded from 3- to 4-way crossings. All crosswalks will be built with 4-inch-by-12-inch concrete pavers in earth tones.

The installations require temporary lane closures.

Installation of the first of many yellow north south paver crosswalks began last month as the pedestrian oriented emphasis of the new downtown streetscape begins to stand out. Despite rainy weather the project remains on schedule and the Del Mar Village Association, in cooperation with the Business Support and Art Advisory Committees, is taking their street furniture ideas to the Design Review Board.
