TYLin was the Prime Consultant for the Torrey Meadows Drive Overcrossing project at SR 56 in San Diego, California.

Torrey Meadows Drive exists as a two-lane street north and south of SR 56 and previously ended in a cul-de-sac on either side of the freeway. The project consists of placing a new two-lane bridge across SR 36.

TYLin’s responsibilities included providing the Project Study Report/Project Report (PSR/PR), environmental technical studies, environmental clearance, and plans, specifications, and estimate (PS&E).  

The new Torrey Meadows Drive Overcrossing connects divided communities, supplies a second means of ingress and egress for properties south of the highway, and reduces traffic congestion at the Camino Del Sur interchange.  

Project Highlights: 

  • The project provides the infrastructure necessary to support local development.  
  • Project approval documents followed California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) guidelines, with concurrent reviews and approvals performed by Caltrans and the City of San Diego.  
  • To process the project for construction, TYLin assisted the City of San Diego, Caltrans, San Diego Association of Governments, and a local developer to Torrey Highlands Public Facilities Financing Plan funds.
