Crest Canyon Repipes
Jeff Barnouw | Amphitheatre Drive

The installation of 4000 feet of reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) as a permanent replacement of the failed storm drain system in Crest Canyon is underway. This work is expected to be completed by Fall 2020. A door-hanger ‘Construction Notice’ on this progress added, “For the safety of the community and to expedite the repairs, the Crest Canyon Park trails will have to remain closed and fenced off for the duration of the project.”

Traffic will be controlled on Racetrack View Drive during the installation of new pipe crossing under that road, “reduced to one-lane traffic access during work hours with flagmen on site, for approximately a couple of months.”

The door-hanger also said “Revegetation and trail restoration will follow [the completion in Fall 2020]”. But both the City of San Diego (Alec Phillipp, City Public Information Officer) and Claudia Mejia, Community Outreach Representative consulting with Burtech Pipeline and liaison to the City, have recently announced that “the City has hired DUDEK [Environmental Planners, Scientists and Engineers] and they will be preparing a restoration plan in coordination with the City’s Biologist and Park and Recreation staff. The plan is to post the restoration plan on the project’s website for the public to review and submit comments on…by late June.”
