Multi-million dollar Port of San Diego project unveiled

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Port of San Diego unveiled its long-awaited north Embarcadero project.

They hosted a public party Saturday to celebrate the completion of the $31 million project to improve and beautify the downtown waterfront.

After nearly three years of construction, the Embarcadero between Navy Pier to B Street now has public gardens, new railings, an artistic restroom and a walkway more than three times its original size.

"It went from about 30 feet, sometimes there were only 18-foot wide areas of the sidewalk. And now it's 105 feet so we can fit a lot more people,” said Marguerite Elicone with the Port of San Diego.

Port representatives say this was only phase one of the improvement project and there are plans to add new restaurants and hotels in the area next year.
