Bump in the road

This past June we reported that the two-lane bump in the Coast to Crest Trail along the northern shore of the San Dieguito River where it crosses El Camino Real would soon be replaced with a continuous pass beneath a new bridge. At the same time the currently eroded trail just west of El Camino Real was to be restored.

No such luck. Now the project first proposed in 2005 and expected to begin last summer is on hold until 2024 in order to “amend the site development permit” to meet California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requirements. The three-year construction process now is anticipated to finish in late 2027.
