Build NCC | Environmental Enhancements

Build NCC includes the restoration of the San Elijo Lagoon. The restoration project will be coordinated with the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy and resource agencies. Lagoon restoration will enhance wetland and upland areas, improve tidal flushing, and include beach sand replenishment.

In addition to restoring the San Elijo Lagoon, approximately 250 acres of open space and sensitive coastal habitat has been preserved and/or enhanced as part of the NCC Program.

During construction, limited access to lagoon and bike trails is anticipated. Some trails may have periodic closures to ensure the safety of trail users. For the latest information on lagoon trail closures, view the closure list.
