Port of San Diego Launches Study of Harbor Drive along San Diego’s Working Waterfront

To improve mobility and safety for all users of Harbor Drive, the Port of San Diego is conducting the Harbor Drive Multimodal Corridor Study. The study focuses on the mainly industrial area of Harbor Drive between the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal in San Diego and the National City Marine Terminal, known as San Diego’s Working Waterfront. It will examine how people use Harbor Drive along this stretch, address existing issues and challenges, and identify opportunities for improvement. It will also look at ways to enhance quality of life for everyone who lives, works and plays along the waterfront and in the surrounding communities.

Area residents, businesses, and all users of Harbor Drive are invited to provide input about their travel or commute experience on Harbor Drive. An Open House will take place on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 4-7 p.m. at Cesar Chavez Campus – San Diego Continuing Education, 1901 Main Street, San Diego, 92113. More information is available at

“The Harbor Drive Multimodal Corridor Study will guide future efforts to improve a major corridor through neighborhoods with both residents and industry,” said Rafael Castellanos, Chairman of the Board of Port Commissioners. “Our challenge is to balance impacts, costs, and benefits to the community in a way that maximizes the quality of life for residents and the potential for economic activity.”

As part of being a 21st Century port, this study is among the many ways in which the Port is seeking continued development and modernization of its maritime operations. Potential improvement projects that are identified could be implemented by the Port and/or other jurisdictions as funding becomes available.
