The Vermont Street Bridge is finally getting a new paint job, compliments of the City of San Diego. Work is scheduled to take 40 working days (from June 3rd start date), with working hours scheduled from M-F, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm. If bridge closure is required, notification signs will be posted at both ends of the structure. Door hanger notices will also be distributed to neighbors within 300 feet of the bridge at least five days in advance of any closure, and the bridge will always re-open on weekends starting at 3:30 pm, Friday.

MARYLAND STREET CONSTRUCTION

The construction zone at Maryland and Van Buren is part of the Maryland Street Storm Drain Replacement Project, which, according to the city’s website,”…includes, but is not limited to, the installation of approximately 50 linear feet of 18-in RCP storm drain; approximately 250 linear feet of 24-in RCP storm drain; construction of Curb Inlets Type A and Type B; Type B5 Storm Drain Cleanout; abandonment of existing 12-in CMP and inlet structure. “

There is no indication as to when this part of the project will be completed, but it looks like they are making good progress to improve drainage in this UH canyon area.

We have always done Ice Cream with the Cops, but this time we are doing something different. We’ve invited the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department to join us. They will be discussing how to prepare for the upcoming fire season and general fire safety. They’ll also be bringing a fire truck (or engine, we aren’t sure which and apparently there is a difference). They’ll be showing how the fire engine works and doing some other demonstrations as well. So bring a friend and join us for an informative and entertaining meeting. Have some ice cream, say hello to neighbors and say thank you to the men and women who help to keep us safe from fire.
