NOVA Services performed a geotechnical investigation for the $3.1 million Ocean Street Beach Access improvement project. Features included seven Carlsbad beach entrances along Ocean Street in an effort to enhance the privacy, security, and aesthetics. Some of the improvements included more inviting and attractive stairs, railings, and landings leading down to beach areas, bike racks, benches, trash/recycling receptacles, lighting, crosswalks, and drought tolerant landscaping. Significant improvements were made to upgrade stormwater systems to current design standards and codes in the areas of the beach accesses. The project was funded through General Capital Construction Funds and Infrastructure Replacement Funds.
