Full Evening and Nighttime Closure of Pershing Drive on Thursday, October 6 (Posted 10/05/2022)

This closure will close Pershing Drive between Upas Street and Florida Drive/26th Street in Balboa Park to all southbound traffic overnight starting at 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 6, through 7 a.m. on Friday, October 7. This will allow crews to safely relocate concrete barriers or “K-Rail” to the east to shift the location of the temporary two-way bikeway and walkway onto a newly constructed temporary access road. Please plan to use alternate routes. We appreciate your patience during construction.
