Document Description
The proposed project consists of improvements along Voigt Drive and Lyman Lane, including the Voigt Drive/Lyman Lane intersection, south along Lyman Lane to the Sixth College Apartments, east along Voigt Drive to the eastern abutment of the Voigt Drive Bridge/I-5 overcrossing, and west along Voigt Drive to the Voigt Drive/Matthews Lane intersection. The project, located adjacent to the UC San Diego Pepper Canyon Blue Line Trolley stop (currently under construction), will improve bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular circulation. The project would install a roundabout at the Voigt Drive/Lyman Lane intersection ( currently a 3-way stop sign); a vehicular turnaround along Lyman Lane; and other roadway and streetscape improvements including bicycle lanes, crosswalks, shuttle access, and signage/wayfinding elements. The project also includes utility (water and gas) relocations and improvements and landscape and hardscape improvements. The Lyman Lane turnaround will require demolition of the Warren Field House facility situated just south of Voigt Drive. All work will be within the existing roadways and immediately adjacent developed area.
