Progress Made to Refine Design, Improve Connectivity, and Minimize Parking Impacts
Thanks for your continued interest in the Uptown Bikeways project. Over the last several months, the project team has been collaborating with the City of San Diego, Uptown community organizations, and other area stakeholders to refine the design of the project’s 12 miles of bikeways. As a result, the project will:
- Improve neighborhood connectivity in North Park, Balboa Park, Hillcrest, Bankers Hill, Mission Valley, and Downtown;
- Enhance mobility for people who bike, walk, and drive;
- Minimize parking impacts in Hillcrest; and
- Include a potential net gain of parking spaces across the project area.
- Below is an example of the project features and benefits that could be included in the Uptown Bikeways.
Over the past six months, the project team has provided more than a dozen updates to community groups and organizations. We will continue to work with the community and local planning groups to refine the project design. The project will seek environmental clearance in spring 2016. The first segment of the project includes Fourth and Fifth avenues from B Street to Washington Street connecting Downtown, Bankers Hill, and Hillcrest, and is expected to go into construction in winter 2017.
