North Park restaurants told to remove outdoor patios to build bus lanes

NORTH PARK (KUSI) – Some of the most popular restaurants in North Park got some unsettling news recently.

The City of San Diego has announced that new bus lanes are going in — and some of those outdoor patios are going out.

The outdoor patios emerged during pandemic restrictions on indoor dining, and quickly became a popular way to dine in San Diego’s temperate weather.

One patio was just completed last Wednesday and restaurant owners were told to take it down the same day.

KUSI’s Dan Plante joined viewers live from University Avenue with more.
