City of San Diego seeking public input on Georgia Street Bridge retrofit

SAN DIEGO -- The City of San Diego is considering a project to retrofit the Georgia Street Bridge, which crosses over University Avenue, just east of Park Boulevard. The main purpose of this retrofit is seismically related - meaning, it's being retrofitted to better handle earthquakes.

Built in 1914, the bridge, abutments, and retaining walls are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As such, input is being sought to determine how to proceed.

Although the Hillcrest Town Council has taken no position on this retrofit, the City of San Diego is curious about how citizens feel about the retrofit.

Those who wish to express comments should e-mail them to DSDEAS@sandiego.gov after reading this document. Comments can also be mailed to Myra Herrman, Environmental Planner, City of San Diego Development Services Center, 1222 First Ave., MS 501, San Diego, CA 92101.

Feel free to CC the Hillcrest Town Council on any correspondence sent to the city at info@hillcresttowncouncil.com. HTC representatives will ensure that community members voice are heard.
