Street-side dining and outdoor retail in Downtown Encinitas

ENCINITAS (KUSI) – The Encinitas City Council recently authorized converting one traffic lane in each direction to restaurant seating and retail display space to allow restaurants and stores to provide safe dining and shopping experiences for people while they follow coronavirus requirements, according to a city news release.

The city’s new Downtown Shared Streets Program is between D and E streets and may possibly be expanded to additional blocks in the future.

Mayor Catherine Blakespear joined Good Morning San Diego to discuss the new program helping businesses.

The project is partially funded by a grant from SANDAG.
