New year, new infrastructure. 🏗️
The City of San Diego says it is hitting the ground running in 2023, prioritizing several large-scale infrastructure projects designed to improve local life.
This includes the Stormwater Department’s annual goal of replacing one mile of pipe, and the ongoing “Sexy Streets” initiative that aims to repave ~54 miles of heavily used roads in underserved communities.
Crews are also in the final stretch of the West Mission Bay Drive Bridge Replacement Project that has overhauled the 1950s-era bridge. Meanwhile, repairs at the 104-year-old Hodges Dam are set to be completed this spring.
Initial construction has started on Pure Water San Diego — a multi-year program that’ll provide nearly 50% of the city’s water supply by the end of 2035.
This is just a sampling of local infrastructure projects that are underway; the city says little by little, it is “working to build a better future for all of us.” 🌆
