Port of San Diego Shares Results of Harbor Drive Multimodal Corridor Study

Second Open House to be held September 12

Following an extensive public outreach process resulting in elaborate input about the various challenges and opportunities to improve mobility and safety for users of Harbor Drive, the Port of San Diego is sharing the findings of its Harbor Drive Multimodal Corridor Study. The study focuses on the area of Harbor Drive between the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal and the National City Marine Terminal, also known as the Working Waterfront, and examines how people use this stretch of Harbor Drive. The study addresses existing issues and challenges, and identifies opportunities for improvement. 

Residents, businesses, and users of Harbor Drive are invited to provide additional insight at a second Open House taking place on Thursday, September 12, 2019 from 6-8 p.m. at the National City Aquatic Center located in Pepper Park at 3300 Goesno Place, National City, 91950. More information, including a list of potential projects suggested by the study, is available at

“While we have evaluated challenges and solutions to improve Harbor Drive, we know no single improvement can enhance mobility in this critical goods movement corridor,” said Chairman Garry Bonelli, Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners. “Yet, the Port, in concert with our transportation partner agencies, are eager to make progress for our entire community – while balancing the costs, benefits and impacts to everyone involved.”

Once the list of potential improvements is refined and finalized, a final plan will be presented to the Board of Port Commissioners around fall 2019.
