San Diego’s next mayor will inherit the difficult task of improving the region’s transportation infrastructure.

Mayoral candidates Carl DeMaio and Bob Filner will face off on the issue Wednesday night in a debate at USD sponsored by the area’s foremost transportation advocates.

The debate is one of many where the two candidates will face off before the general election. But Wednesday’s debate is one of the few that will be streamed live on the web.

Councilman DeMaio and U.S. Rep. Filner will discuss issues such as how to build communities that don't require much driving and how to improve public transportation. NBC 7's Mark Mullen will moderate the debate.

Visit this article again from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday night to watch.

We’ll be looking for your feedback throughout the night. Just Tweet using the hashtag, #NBC7Debate or chime in on our Facebook page.

NBC 7 San Diego will also help host a debate at the Voice of San Diego’s Politifest on Saturday September 29 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Ingram Plaza in Liberty Station.
