Construction Update to Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council On October 17, council members and residents learned about the progress made in building the new tunnel, with over 1 mile completed to date. We also shared the construction-related activities that will be occurring at Royal Palms Beach in early 2023. Potholing will be done around our property at the beach to more accurately determine the footprint of the underground structure that connects the existing tunnels to the ocean outfalls. This is the initial work for the construction at Royal Palms Beach. To request a presentation, visit our webpage.
