In a little more than a year from now, the North Embarcadero area between Navy Pier and the B Street Pier will feature an expansive,105-foot wide public promenade, public gardens, shade pavilions, new landscaping and other amenities when construction on the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan Phase I project is completed.
As a visible sign of progress, on Monday, May 20, 2013, traffic lanes were moved approximately 60 feet to the east between Navy and B Street Piers. This will allow construction of the waterfront promenade to begin. Additionally, two pavilions that will house a café, a visitor information center, two ticket kiosks and a public restroom will begin construction.
Seventy-one students from Logan and Perkins Elementary schools participated. Several students submitted "Logan" as the new tug name, as a sign of pride in their neighborhood.
The Port of San Diego may be the fourth largest port in the state of California, but it is number one when it comes to specialty cargo that requires careful handling.
"Break bulk" cargo is a term for specialty cargo that doesn't easily fit into standardized metal containers. One recent offload at the Port's Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal caught the eyes of many spectators from the North Embarcadero to across the bay in Coronado.
