Project Description:

This project is located at the intersection of Superior Avenue and West Coast Highway and involves the construction of a new pedestrian/bicycle bridge across Superior Avenue and a larger parking lot with 129 parking spaces. The adjacent Sunset Ridge Park, which was completed in December 2014, is a 13.7-acre active park with a baseball field and two soccer fields. Unfortunately, due to California Coastal Development Permit constraints associated with the Sunset Ridge Park development, on-site parking was not included with the development of the park. Visitors to Sunset Ridge Park currently park at the existing parking lot on the southeast side of Superior Avenue. The existing parking lot only has 64 parking spaces and does not provide adequate parking for larger organized sporting events. The primary goals of this project are to increase parking and improve pedestrian and bicycle safety and access to Sunset Ridge Park.

Proposed improvements include the following:

  • New pedestrian/bicycle bridge approximately 210 feet long and 12 feet wide overcrossing Superior Avenue
  • New larger parking lot with 129 parking spaces
  • Expansion of Sunset View Park (additional grass area)
  • Earthwork, grading, retaining walls, storm drain and lighting improvements
  • Landscape and irrigation improvements
  • Amenities including a drop-off area, bicycle fix-it station, and a drinking water fountain

Project Status (Updated 4/23/2024):

We made significant progress this past month. The temporary bridge falsework was removed in early April. The new pedestrian bridge is now free standing and almost complete. The contractor still needs to finish the interior of the bridge and install railings and lighting. Although the bridge structure is substantially complete, the temporary lane closures on Superior Avenue are still needed for the next couple of months to facilitate constructing a small retaining wall and installing electrical and landscape improvements.

The large retaining wall on the north side of the proposed parking lot is also substantially complete. With this wall in place, the contractor can now focus on backfilling behind the walls and completing the rough grading. Lastly, the backbone of the storm drain system was also completed earlier this month. This was a challenging task due to the unpredictable groundwater that was encountered throughout the site.

We are still on track to complete this project in September 2024. Thank you for your continued patience throughout construction. We request residents and visitors to observe all traffic restrictions. You are also encouraged to visit this City project webpage ( regularly for the most up-to-date project information.
