The Port of San Diego is looking to ease transportation along the waterfront. They want to hear how people living, visiting and working near Harbor Drive think the area could be improved.

From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday night, they are holding an open house at the Cesar E. Chavez campus downtown.

The port is studying “San Diego’s working waterfront.” The area stretches from the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal in Barrio Logan to the National City Marine Terminal.

Port of San Diego chairman Rafael Castellanos said they will be looking at how to increase mobility options along harbor drive, especially with the current redevelopment of the 10th Avenue cargo terminal.

“We expect to have potentially over the next 20-25 years a 400 percent increase in cargo. Which is great, because it will create over 500 good jobs. But it also will result in more truck traffic obviously,” Castellanos said.

An interactive map is available where you can propose projects or improvements. People have already suggested things like divided bike paths, and increased turning lanes along Harbor Drive.

If you can’t make Wednesday's open house, there will also be upcoming upcoming community even
