Construction has officially begun! As you can see, the City of Santee has begun its Prospect Avenue Corridor Enhancement Project.  Despite the big mess, we will be open throughout construction!

The $25 million project, calls for upgrading a mile-long section of  Prospect Avenue between Magnolia Avenue and Cuyamaca Street.  Improvements include adding sidewalks, curbs and gutters, along with attractive but water-wise landscaping. Overhead utility wires will be undergrounded and utility poles removed. New street lighting will be installed and storm drains will be upgraded to eliminate flooding. On-street parking and bicycle lanes will be provided on both sides of the street. Traffic signals will be upgraded and a dual left-turn lane will be added. Construction is expected to take one year to complete.
