Pardon Our Dust! Chula Vista Bayfront Road Closures and Park Access Notice

As part of the Chula Vista Bayfront redevelopment, several roads near and around Bayside Park are anticipated to close soon. The closures will allow for construction crews to demolish existing structures as well as to build and install new public roads and infrastructure for the future Gaylord Pacific Resort and Convention Center project. This work will impact access to Bayside Park, some bayfront businesses, and the Bayshore Bikeway. (These activities are contingent on close of escrow, which is anticipated to take place between May 17-26, 2022.)

Below is what the public can expect over the next several months, the first phase of an approximately 36-month construction schedule. Details about future phases will be sent out later.

Closures and Detours

  • Beginning as early as late May and ending late summer:
    • Sandpiper Way between Chula Vista Marina and G Street WILL BE CLOSED.
      • The alternate route to Bayside Park and Marine Group Boat Works will start at F Street/Lagoon Drive at Bay Boulevard, then continues west on Lagoon Drive, which turns into Marina Parkway. From Marina Parkway, go west on G Street. To continue to the park, go to Quay Avenue, turn south to Bayside Parkway, then go west into the park. See map below.
    • Bayside Parkway between Quay Avenue and Sandpiper Way WILL BE CLOSED.
  • For public safety, public access to Bayside Park will be limited or unavailable at times. Plus, no event permits will be issued.
  • Bayshore Bikeway – the path toward the shoreline will remain open; however, some of the streetside bike lanes will close and detours will direct cyclists to alternate new and existing bike lanes.
