The Paseo Padre underpass, which had been scheduled to open this month, is now slated for Aug. 11 or 12.
The city has built a new stretch of Paseo Padre underneath at-grade rail tracks, so people don’t have to sit in their cars and wait for trains to pass. Everything is a go for the new Paseo Padre except the pedestrian safety rail.
Since the new sidewalk is raised above the new street, the rail is needed to keep people from plunging into the roadway. In should be ready in a couple of weeks.
