Early 1900s Streetcar Tracks Discovered in La Jolla

A San Diego Gas & Electric crew uncovered old streetcar tracks last week while replacing underground electric cable. The tracks were discovered below the pavement on Fay Avenue in La Jolla Village and belonged to San Diego's No. 16 line. The line provided service from La Jolla to Ocean beach from July 1st, 1924 to September 16th, 1940. In 1940, the line was abandoned and replaced with bus service. The streetcar terminal was demolished that year as well, which is where Barfly nightclub is now. Pieces of streetcar tracks are found frequently in La Jolla, especially when roadwork is being done. SDG&E has been advised to work around the tracks and preserve them as best as possible. For the next four to eight months, SDG&E will be updating the underground electric system that was installed in La Jolla in the 1970s. Approximately 13,600 feet of streets will be trenched during the project. No disruption in residential service is expected.
