Road Construction Update
During the month of March 2008, the City of San Diego road improvement project on Genesee Avenue will:

  • Continue grading for curb, gutter, sidewalk, and subgrade street section
  • Replace irrigation system at Scripps Hospital Drive
  • Relocate the path at Scripps Hospital Drive
