Georgia St. Bridge

Delayed restoration of bridge is a headache to locals caught in traffic

The historic Georgia St. Bridge is way behind schedule, locals feel the delay.

Locals aren’t happy with how long it’s taking to retrofit the Georgia Street Bridge on the cusp of Hillcrest and North Park.

The project is long over schedule, it was supposed to be completed by July 2017, but now it won’t be ready until next spring.

Most people are unhappy because of traffic delays and drivers taking side streets to avoid it.

Rebuild begins of iconic Georgia St. bridge

Crews began a comprehensive seismic retrofit and rehabilitation on Tuesday of the iconic Georgia Street Bridge, a key symbol and artery for San Diego residents that links Hillcrest to North Park.

The $14 million project, scheduled for completion next summer, will also restore the 102-year-old bridge to its former glory after years of neglect, city officials said.
