Terramar Area Coastal Improvement Project

Based on community input, the City of Carlsbad has updated designs for a project to improve safety, traffic flow and the overall coastal experience in the area around Cannon Road and Carlsbad Boulevard, known locally as the Terramar neighborhood.

See the latest designs.

If you want to know more or have comments about the project, please contact the project manager (info below).  

The Project

The city has been working with the community for the past few years to address safety, parking and traffic concerns around the Terramar neighborhood and to enhance the bluff top area across from the Power Plant. We’ve created several design options, gotten feedback, made refinements and now have the final draft designs ready to share.

Next Steps

  • The project designs are scheduled to be presented to the City Council in early 2018 for input and selection of the preferred project design.
  • The final design and environmental analysis will then be presented to the Planning Commission for approval. We are currently shooting for spring 2018.
  • This project requires Coastal Commission approval, which typically takes six to nine months.
  • Once we have all the necessary approvals and permits, we’ll put the project out to bid for final design and construction. The project already has funding allocated in the city budget.
  • Once construction starts, the improvements should take about 18 months to complete.
  • What’s the bottom line? Making any changes along our coastline requires a lot of review and consideration – for good reason. If all goes according to plan, residents can expect to see these improvements completed sometime in mid 2020.
