The San Diego Government Association leadership joined construction workers on Thursday preparing to complete the project milestone for the UC San Diego Blue Line Trolley mid-coast expansion.
The crew had lunch before the “replenishment” of the multi-storey car park at the UTC Transit Center scheduled for Friday morning. The topping of the structure is when the last deck is poured and the structure reaches the highest vertical point.
The parking lot will support future expansion of the Blue Line Trolley, which will be available later this year, by providing direct access to the UTC Transit Center and UTC Trolley Station. This structure is a shared facility for MTS Transit Riders and Westfield UTC patrons, with 333 spaces dedicated to transit riders and 139 spaces dedicated to retail users.
“Today’s milestones show SANDAG’s commitment to delivering projects on time and on budget,” said Alejandra Sotelo-Solis, SANDAG’s Second Vice Chairman and Mayor of National City.
“The Midcoast Corridor is the largest infrastructure project to date in the San Diego region and today congratulates the dedicated workforce that millions of people will continue to work on to make it safe throughout the pandemic. “I will,” she continued.
When completed, the UTC multi-storey car park will be over 38 feet high and will be four multi-storey car parks. It took 6,500 cubic yards of concrete to make the structure. In addition to parking space for mall patrons and transit riders, it has a bicycle parking facility that can accommodate 40 bicycles, an electric vehicle charging station, and rooftop solar panels to power the parking structure. I have.
The $ 22.6 million UTC multi-storey car park project will begin construction in January and will be completed in December.
The $ 2.1 billion mid-coast expansion of the UC San Diego Blueline Trolley began construction in 2016 and is being billed as the region’s largest infrastructure project in history.
