As part of site preparation for a $1.1 billion hotel and convention center to be constructed between H and G streets, west of Marina Parkway, trucks will transport soil to the bayfront between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. every day but Sunday. The first span of deliveries is scheduled to be completed around Aug. 11. The second period will begin Aug. 20 and continue through October.
Vehicles will enter and exit Interstate 5 via H Street.
Soil is needed to increase elevation and accommodate future potential sea level rise as well as improve drainage, according to Port officials.
Additionally, crews are conducting demolition work southeast of H Street and Marina Parkway at a site known as the South Campus.
Infrastructure improvements at the hotel and convention center site will likely get underway next year. That includes building new access roads and public streets.
Expected to provide roughly 1,600 hotel rooms and 275,000 square feet of convention space, the project anchors the Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan, a decade-long joint planning effort between the port, city of Chula Vista and other stakeholders.
