The work finishing up on Camino del Mar between 4th and 9th streets is repair work, patching the pavement and repairing curbs only. It is not part of the 9th street to the Plaza Downtown Streetscape project recently completed and will remain a “hole” on the Camino del Mar stretch from Torrey Pines Beach to Jimmy Durante Blvd. pending additional funding. There will be new striping.
A number of residents have expressed concern for trees in the median and in front of the Library that look like they are dying. The City has assured us that the Magnolia Grandeflora, or St. Mary’s, trees may be suffering temporary stress and, if any do not survive, they will be replaced by the contractor.
