Bridge workers stayed on the job on broken deck sections on the straight path into Balboa Park on Laurel Street on April 30th, the day former interim mayor TOdd Gloria told San Diegans they can count on using an open path. Wednesday, the deck replacement project begun at the beginning of January on the Cabrillo Bridge kept drivers blocked off.
Only the middle section old asphalt deck had been removed. The west end road had a long trench cut into it.
On the east end, orange vested workers cleared dirt off the road top. New bricks that filled both sides on the path into the El Prado in front of the Museum of Man made leisurely park wlaks safe to take. San Diegans enjoyed the walking lines workers had the time to repair, and beautify.
The opening of the two-way path on Laurel Street over the bridge locals use for their Balboa Park trips was simply cut off by the ongoing work. Walkers, and bicyclists walking a bike, had only the north sidewalk, planked for construction work, to take for a park trip.
Delayed main work on the deck replacement, and setting up new bridge light lines, will take up weeks into Summer.
Locals planning a Summer trip into Balboa Park have to plan to work around the inconvenience using the wide west park entrance.
Regular work on the bridge pillars, arches, and length retrofit moves ahead slow above Cabrillo Freeway drivers.. Work supports surrounded the concrete above the freeway lanes.
