The Uptown Bikeways
project will enhance neighborhood connectivity between Uptown, Old Town, Mission Valley, Downtown San Diego, North Park, and Balboa Park; promote active living and healthy communities; and make streets safer for people who bike, walk, drive, and take transit. Features include streetscape enhancements and amenities that will make roadways more pleasant for people of all ages and abilities to walk or ride a bike for everyday trips. The project also will create links to the larger bikeway network being built throughout the region. The Uptown Bikeways include five segments:
The Uptown Bikeways project is one of the first high-priority projects identified in the San Diego Regional Bike Plan to be funded for implementation.
The project is designed to meet the following goals, which were established with input from a 38-member Community Advisory Group:
- Mobility: increase travel choices, connect communities
- Experience: improve travel safety for everyone, create an exceptional biking experience
- Community: build on and support related community initiatives
- Placemaking: enhance community identity and public spaces
- Economic Development: improve public infrastructure and strengthen opportunities for community and business development
After several years of planning, community outreach, and project refinement, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) exemption for Segments 1-4 of the Uptown Bikeways project on July 22, 2016. Additionally, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the CEQA exemption for part of Segment 5, the portion of the Park Boulevard Bikeway from Robinson Avenue to Upas Street, on February 15, 2019. The section of Segment 5 from Upas Street to Village Place is still in the planning phase and will be completed at a future date.
While work continues on the entire project, the first segment to undergo construction is Segment 1: Fourth and Fifth Avenue Bikeways.
