SDG&E's Bear Valley Parkway Replacement Project Update
Substantial progress has been made over the past month on the Bear Valley Parkway Replacement Project. To date, the project is approximately 75-percent complete. Since the start of construction in November 2020, San Diego Gas and Electric Company (SDG&E) crews have trenched more than two miles along Bear Valley Parkway between San Pasqual Valley Road and Beethoven Drive and installed 11,000 feet of new pipe.
To accommodate increasing school and other traffic along Bear Valley Parkway as COVID-19 restrictions ease, crews have switched to overnight work for the next 6 to 8 weeks. Reduced traffic lanes may be necessary along Bear Valley Parkway between Las Palmas and Beethoven Driven between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. until May 31. Residents and businesses along Bear Valley Parkway will have in and out access during this time. More information about this SDG&E project can be found here .
