Construction is underway on the SR 15 Mid-City Centerline Rapid Transit Stations project, which will build San Diego’s first freeway-level transit
stations along State Route 15 (SR 15) at University Avenue and El Cajon
Boulevard. The project also will construct transit-only lanes within the
existing median from just north of I-805 to just south of I-8.
This will help improve on-time performance between the existing Rapid and local
transit routes. The new stations will be open in 2017.
As crews work to build the new station platforms and dedicated Rapid
transit lanes, nearby residents and businesses can expect intermittent noise
during the day and at night in construction areas. Motorists and transit riders
can expect intermittent traffic delays and are encouraged to give themselves
more time to reach their destination. For transit information visit sdmts.com.
SR 15 Commuter Bikeway
In conjunction with the transit
stations project, SANDAG and Caltrans broke ground in March 2016 on a $14 million bike project along the SR 15 corridor. The SR 15 Commuter Bikeway
will be a safe and direct bike route connecting Mid-City communities
with the major retail, commercial, education, and entertainment
destinations in the city’s Mission Valley community. The bike path is
anticipated to open in spring 2017. View more information on this project.
