Breaking Ground on February 29th; What to Expect

After launching the Balboa Park Area Plan to identify the needed community improvements for connecting, restoring, and enhancing the Balboa Park Station area, we are excited to announce that the Balboa Park Station Area Improvements Project issued Notice-To-Proceed (NTP) on January 25th and will break ground on February 29th.  

This project was designed to implement safety, accessibility, and transit improvements around the Balboa Park Station to enhance the customer experience for the 24,000 people it serves daily in the region’s busiest multimodal facilities.

Please visit the project page for details about the many improvements coming.

Construction Timeline and What to Expect

  • Start of Construction: February 29, 2016
  • Duration: About 8 months, weather permitting
  • General Construction Working Hours: 7 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
  • Major impacts are scheduled to avoid disruption of weekday, peak-hour congestion

As with any construction project, area impacts are expected, including noise, dust and moving vehicles. Other temporary impacts throughout construction may also include traffic delays, parking restrictions, bus stop relocations, traffic routing, pedestrian detours and transit service changes.

We will consistently work with the contractor to minimize disruptions to the community and mitigate concerns.
