The Cabrillo Bridge will close its gates to car traffic for a $38 million retrofitting, bringing the iconic bridge up to current earthquake standards.
If you’re used to getting into Balboa Park via the Laurel Street overpass, you should know that a construction project will close that route to vehicles for several months.
The Cabrillo Bridge is undergoing a $38 million rehabilitation and retrofit project.
The renovation will bring the bridge up to current earthquake standards, officials said.
They also plan to repave the road used by many San Diegans to access the museums in Balboa Park.
To allow work crews access to the bridge, vehicle traffic will be rerouted from January to April.
Caltrans is planning to keep a narrow walkway for pedestrians and bicyclists who walk their bikes.
The project is expected to be completed before The Balboa Park 2015 Centennial Celebration.
