From the City of Coronado City Manager’s Weekly Newsletter:

Coastal Campus Entrance Construction:  The Navy has informed the City that it will soon begin construction on the State Route 75 entrance of the new Coastal Campus, a SEAL training complex that is being built along the ocean south of the Coronado Cays. Beginning on or before Wednesday, October 18, those in the area may see temporary lane closures, continued speed restrictions and traffic control signage from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. as crews build the new entrance. The improvements to the entrance, which includes the installation of a new traffic signal, turn lanes and gates on the ocean side of SR-75, will be done in eight phases with a completion date of May 31, 2018. The Navy announced that it will rename the road entering the Coastal Campus from Hooper Boulevard to Old Fort Emory Boulevard. Fort Emory was the old Army installation along the Silver Strand from 1942 to 1947, when it was turned over to the Navy. It was named after William Hemsley Emory, a U.S. Army officer and surveyor.
