K-Rails on 10th and Robinson streets in Hillcrest removed

SAN DIEGO -- The cement barrier that previously deferred cars from the SR-163 off-ramp onto Robinson Avenue in Hillcrest, called a K-rail, has been removed to help alleviate the bottleneck common to the intersection of Robinson and Tenth avenues in Hillcrest.

Luke Terpstra, Chair of the Hillcrest Town Council (HTC), said the previous situation “brought all the lanes down to one [lane] with one stop.”

Through the efforts of the HTC and representatives from District 3 Councilmember Todd Gloria’s and Assemblymember Toni Atkins’s offices, the rail was removed and a new lane is now in place to minimize future traffic congestion leading onto Robinson Avenue.

Terpstra said, “The [Hillcrest] Town Council polled the community to see what we thought would be the best solution and what the City was willing to do. For now that’s what this seems to be. We’ve tried to get our elected officials to push it forward, and they have.”
