Mission Hills and Old Town Bikeways (Segment 4)

Female riding a bike on University Avenue near Dove StreetThe Mission Hills and Old Town Bikeways project is one of five segments planned as part of the Uptown Bikeways, which will enhance neighborhood connectivity between Uptown, Old Town, Mission Valley, Downtown San Diego, North Park, and Balboa Park. 

The project is comprised of two segments – the Mission Hills segment and the Old Town segment – that will add approximately 1.8 miles of bikeways designed to make the streets more pleasant for people who bike, walk, and drive.

The Mission Hills segment will extend approximately 0.7 miles along West University Avenue between Ibis Street and First Avenue. This project will update existing shared lane travel markings ("sharrows") on West University Avenue with proposed features including neighborhood traffic circles, speed cushions, and other traffic calming measures designed to improve safety and visibility for people biking, walking, scooting, and rolling.

The Old Town segment will extend approximately 1.1 miles along Congress Street between the Old Town Transit Center and Ampudia Street and along San Diego Avenue from Ampudia Street to Noell Street. Proposed features of the Old Town Bikeway include buffered bike lanes, shared lane markings (“sharrows”), and two-stage left turn boxes. Buffered bike lanes are conventional bike lanes combined with a painted buffer that increases the distance between people on bikes and the adjacent motor vehicle travel lane and/or parking lane.

The Mission Hills and Old Town Bikeways project is currently in the preliminary design phase. Please check the Notices tab for project updates or sign up to be added to our email list.
