The City of San Diego has begun a construction project on the SDSU campus. The project will upgrade city sewer services as mandated by Federal law by installing new sewer lines along Canyon Crest Dr. on the northern edge of the campus near parking Lot X. The City’s project activity may unavoidably impact some University activities. The University recently completed year-long negotiations with City officials in an attempt to reduce these impacts as much as possible. The majority of the work will be completed at night between the hours of 8:00 pm to 5:00 am with normal both lanes of traffic opened after 5 am through the Spring 2013 semester. After 8:00 pm one lane of traffic will always be available with traffic control personnel controlling vehicle activity. Special considerations have been arranged for Viejas Arena and other large venue events where the City’s contractor will be required to schedule their start times for these and other large events to begin after the campus is clear from event traffic.
Following the Spring semester, from May 20-June 30, 2013, there will be a period of time that trenching will need to occur across Canyon Crest Rd. During this period, vehicle through traffic will be closed from 8:00 pm to 5:00 am. At no time will Canyon Crest be closed to vehicle traffic during normal business hours. More information will be provided on the details of this activity as the time nears.
