Planning Continues for the Washington Street Bikeway Project
The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) would like to thank the community members who attended the Washington Street Bikeway pop-up events on July 16. The project team talked with more than 50 people about the proposed bikeway. Materials from the July 16 information sessions, including the Washington Street Bikeway concepts, are available online at KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/WashingtonBachmanBikewaysInvolved.
The next steps will be to make refinements to the plans, based on the comments received, and to submit plans to the City of San Diego for review and approval prior to starting construction in 2021. If you were unable to attend the meetings and would like to provide feedback, please contact the Project Manager, Danny Veeh, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SANDAG will continue to work with the community during the life of the Washington Street and Bachman Place Bikeways project. Please continue to check KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/WashingtonBachmanBikewaysNotices for upcoming opportunities to get involved.
Thank you for your interest in the Washington Street and Bachman Place Bikeways project!
About the Project
The Washington Street and Bachman Place 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 Washington Street Bikeway is a 1.1-mile bikeway that will provide a vital connection for people to walk and bike between Hillcrest and the Five Points neighborhood, and the Bachman Place Bikeway is a 2.2-mile bikeway that will connect Hillcrest and Mission Valley.
Project features include protected bikeways, buffered bike lanes, high-visibility crosswalks, curb extensions, traffic signal enhancements, and other traffic calming measures designed to make the streets more pleasant for everyone – people who walk, bike, drive cars, work, and live there.
