Soil Importing to Chula Vista Bayfront to Affect Traffic June 27-July 20

The Port of San Diego continues to prepare for future construction on the Chula Vista Bayfront. On June 27, 2018, the Port is scheduled to begin importing 210,000 cubic yards of soil to the site of the planned resort hotel and convention center, and another 60,000 cubic yards to an adjacent site. The soil is needed to increase elevation to accommodate for future potential sea level rise and to improve drainage. The project will require 200 to 400 truck trips per day, which could impact traffic in the area.

Trucks will be transporting the soil to the bayfront between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and potentially some Saturdays during two time periods. The first time period is scheduled to begin June 27, and through July 20, 2018. The second time period is tentatively scheduled to begin on August 7, and is anticipated to go through late September 2018. Trucks will be entering and exiting Interstate 5 via H Street, traveling along H Street between I-5 and Marina Parkway, and crossing Sandpiper Way north of Bayside Parkway.

Additionally, crews are conducting demolition work just southeast of H Street and Marina Parkway, known as South Campus, a site formerly occupied by Rohr. The work primarily involves the removal of concrete foundation slabs and asphalt pads. Demolition began on June 4, and is anticipated to be completed around August 8. After demolition is complete, grading activities will take place until mid-October. Equipment and trucks will enter the bayfront from southbound Interstate 5 via J Street to Marina Parkway and will exit via Marina Parkway to H Street.

The Chula Vista Bayfront resort hotel and convention center will be constructed between H and G Streets west of Marina Parkway. It will be developed by RIDA Chula Vista, LLC and operated by Gaylord Hotels, the large convention hotel brand of Marriott International. It will include approximately 1,600 hotel rooms, 275,000 usable square feet of convention and meeting space and associated retail and resort-level amenities such as restaurant/bar/lounge facilities, recreational facilities, a spa, a pool with a lazy river, bike and boat rentals and more.

Construction on public infrastructure improvements associated with the hotel project could get underway as soon as 2019, which includes additional site preparation, building access roads and new public streets (portions of E, G and H Streets), providing utility services and building the new Harbor Park.
