Agencies Finish $11M Emergency Repair of Del Mar Bluffs with Phase 5 Set for Next Year

Posted on June 20, 2022

Construction crews have completed emergency repairs to stabilize the Del Mar Bluffs, but additional work is slated to begin next year, it was announced Friday.

The San Diego Association of GovernmentsNorth County Transit District and the city of Del Mar have worked to stabilize the bluffs following a collapse in February 2021.

Construction began in March 2021.

The emergency repairs consisted of the installation of additional piled support columns to stabilize the train tracks in the collapsed area, slope repairs, drainage improvements, bluff toe protection and revegetation planting and hydroseeding of the slope, according to a statement from the Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor.

“Stabilizing the Del Mar Bluffs is crucial to ensuring safe and reliable rail operations and creating a faster, fairer, cleaner transportation system through SANDAG’s 2021 Regional Plan,” said the agency’s chair, Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear, when the work began last year.
