San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) required assistance with California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) compliance for work on a gas main beneath the Georgia Street Bridge in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego, California.
PanGIS staff conducted archaeological monitoring for installation of 575 feet of gas main beneath the Georgia Street Bridge in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego. The purpose of monitoring was to assist SDG&E in its compliance with CEQA, which included supervision of the removal of approximately 20 feet of historical trolley tracks. Research was also conducted regarding the trolley tracks, primarily consulting Richard Dodge’s Rails of the Silver Gate: The Spreckels San Diego Empire (Golden West Books, San Marino, CA: 1960). The removed rail and a sample of associated hardware, brick, and redwood tie were delivered to the San Diego Electric Railway Association in National City (President Mike Reading) for use in an interpretive display.
