Port of San Diego receives public input for mobility study
The Port of San Diego held a community workshop, Feb. 21, to receive input on the district’s Harbor Drive Multimodal Corridor Study. Port district staff hopes the study would ultimately lead to improved mobility along Harbor Drive, specifically between the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal near Downtown San Diego’s Fifth Avenue Landing and the National City Marine Terminal, just north of Pier 32 Marina.
Fifth Avenue Landing and Pier 32 Marina – two marinas serving recreational boaters – are included within the jurisdiction of the study, according to port district staff.
Input from the open house event – held at the Cesar E. Chavez campus of San Diego Continuing Education – will be used to help shape the port district’s study.
The Harbor Drive Multimodal Corridor Study, ultimately, would examine driving habits in a commercial stretch of the San Diego Waterfront between Fifth Avenue Landing and Pier 32 Marina.
“The study will consider all modes of transportation used by residents, visitors and businesses in the area – foot, bicycle, passenger vehicle, bus, cargo truck, light rail, cargo rail, and vessel. The goal is to identify potential improvement projects, large and small, that could be implemented by the Port and/or other jurisdictions as funding becomes available,” port district staff stated.
