Grant Awarded for the Washington Street and Bachman Place Bikeways Project

The following information was shared with the Mission Hills BID by the SANDAG’s GO by BIKE:

The California Transportation Commission (CTC) awarded $7 million to SANDAG to construct the Washington Street and Bachman Place Bikeways project through the Local Partnership Program! The project will add 3.2 miles of bikeways within and between Uptown San Diego and adjacent communities. Design work is underway and construction could begin as soon as late 2022.

The 1.1-mile Washington Street Bikeway will connect Mission Hills with the Five Points neighborhood and the Washington Street Trolley Station and continue north toward Old Town. The 2.2-mile Bachman Place Bikeway will connect Bankers Hill and Hillcrest to Mission Valley and the San Diego River Trail. The Washington Street and Bachman Place Bikeways project is one of five segments planned as part of the Uptown Bikeways, which will add approximately 12 miles of bike boulevards and protected bikeways to connect the neighborhoods of Uptown, Old Town, Mission Valley, Downtown San Diego, North Park, and Balboa Park.
