Improving Coastal Access & Expanding the Regional Bike Network

Interstate 5 and the coastal rail line act as barriers to the coastline for bicyclists and pedestrians. In addition, there are several gaps in the trail system that inhibit connections to transit centers along the coast. The North Coast Corridor Program will enhance public access to the coastline by bridging gaps created by the freeway today. The program will complete and enhance trail connections, linking the coastal cities via the proposed 27-mile North Coast Bike Trail and closing east-west gaps that inhibit bicyclists and pedestrian from reaching the coast.

To identify the solutions, SANDAG and Caltrans solicited input from the public and undertook a Safe Access to Transit and Coastal Resources study, included as Appendix A of the Public Works Plan/Transportation and Resource Enhancement Program.
