The area, known as Paseo Santa Fe, encompasses the S. Santa Fe Avenue corridor between Vista Village Drive and Civic Center Drive. The City's vision is to fill the area with retail/shops/restaurants topped with living spaces to revitalize the downtown area. The project is being constructed in three phases. Phase I was completed in 2016.
Phase II (.20 miles): Work began in December, 2017. This phase extends from Ocean View Drive to Terrace Drive. Crews will begin at Oceanview Drive and work toward Civic Center Drive. Sewer mains will be constructed first, then storm drain facilities and water lines, followed by the undergrounding of overhead utility lines. A roundabout will be constructed at Guajome and Terrace drives. Surface improvements such as landscaping, sidewalks, and lighting will be completed during the final segment. Construction is expected to be completed in March, 2020.
Road Closure (April 16, 2018)
Pala Vista Drive between S. Santa Fe Avenue and Mercantile Street will be closed for the next 2-3 weeks due to sewer line construction. In an effort to alleviate traffic congestion, Guajome Street will be re-opened to traffic between S. Santa Fe and Mercantile Street.
