City to Host Meeting Tonight on Prospect Avenue Project

Monday, August 18, 2014

Santee city officials will host a public meeting tonight at 6 p.m. at the City Council Chambers to provide information to residents and business owners affected by the Prospect Avenue Corridor Enhancement Project.
The project, which is about 60 percent  finished, will now include grinding away and replacing the road surface.  Work will begin near Cuyamaca Street and continue east toward Magnolia Avenue. This work will require temporary closure of driveways to allow the roadway to be constructed.
Last Monday, the city notified property owners and tenants of the roadway construction work and of tonight’s public meeting.

To minimize the impact, Prospect Avenue will be reconstructed in increments. The city will give advance notice to business owners when their  particular driveways and frontage will be affected by the road work.
The $25 million project, which started in January and is expected to take a year to finish, calls for upgrading a mile-long section of  Prospect Avenue between Magnolia Avenue and Cuyamaca Street.
Improvements include adding sidewalks, curbs and gutters, along with attractive but water-wise landscaping. Overhead utility wires will be undergrounded and utility poles removed. New street lighting will be installed and storm drains will be upgraded. On-street parking and bicycle lanes will be provided on both sides of the street.
Questions or concerns can be directed to Senior Civil Engineer Toby Espinola at (619) 258-4100 ext. 174.
