Heading South on Coast Hwy. turn east on Via de la Valle then turn South at Solana Gate which passes the new train platform and then connects to a through traffic tunnel at the intersection of San Diequito Road and Jimmy Durante Blvd. Here is the start of the Rail Trail which connects to the River Park Trail and ties Torrey PInes Park together as one continuous public space via the bluffs, which also serves as a connector to the south end of Del Mar where there will be a visitor center and a large multistory below grade parking structure that serves Torrey Pines, Del Mar, and the Fair Grounds at the intersection of Camino Del Mar and Carmel Valley Road. This is where the traffic tunnel merges with the Coast Hwy and Carmel Valley Road. The train tunnel would be moved and elevated to the east side of the Lagoon and Los Penasquitos estuary would be restored, with the existing parking lot removed and reclaimed as habitat. The bluffs would be maintained as parkland and restored on a continuing basis to maintain quality beach access and prevent excessive erosion, as well as providing amazing views and recreational opportunities.
