The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is starting work to build a trolley underpass at La Jolla Colony Drive.
KUSI reports that construction of the underpass will take months to complete. Due to complexity of the work, the entire underpass is expected to continue throughout the rest of the year, according to SANDAG.
The underpass is being constructed as part of the $2.17 billion Mid-Coast Trolley Blue Line Extension, which includes a planned 11-mile extension of trolley service by the Metropolitan Transit System from Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego to University City.
The extension will add trolley stops in Mission Bay Park, UC San Diego and Westfield UTC. SANDAG is receiving $1.04 billion in funding from the Federal Transit Administration to complete the project.
