Document Description
The proposed project is a Right of Entry License Agreement (ROELA) to Civic San diego to enter upon certain property located immediately east of the intersection of Harbor Drive and Park Boulevard to allow for infrastructure and landscape improvements associated with the re-construction of an at-grade vehicular crossing connecting Park Boulevard to Harbor Drive. The proposed crossing would provide an at-grade link between the Bayfront and the East Village neighborhood of downtown San Diego, and would cross the existing BNSF railroad tracks and the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) trolley tracks in that area.
