Improvements to Seven Public Beach Access Sites

The City of Carlsbad wanted to create a better experience for beach-goers by making the entrances to the beach more inviting, safer, and easier to find. Improvements include the addition of accessible pedestrian ramps, removal and replacement of existing concrete stairs, reconfiguration of selective landings and viewing platforms, introduction of drinking fountains at select access area, and landscape improvements.

Psomas provided design and construction support services for these improvements to seven beach access sites along the west side of Ocean Street. Services included grading, drainage utilities, stormwater management designs, and SWPPP preparation.
