After the holiday, anyone driving near the Dana Point Harbor may see some construction. On June 29, city and county officials held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Dana Point Harbor revitalization project. On July 5, construction along Dana Point Harbor Road and Puerto Place will begin.
Fifth District Supervisor Lisa Bartlett led the ceremony and said the project has been in the works for several years.
“We’re here to celebrate the start of what is the first phase for work for the long awaited revitalization effort,” Bartlett said.
The project will include a street with additional lanes, new left and right turn signals, new ADA-approved ramps and more.
Dana Point Mayor Pro Tem Richard Viczorek said the city is excited for the work. “It’s been a long time coming,” Viczorek said.
