Bayshore Bikeway

The Bayshore Bikeway is a 24-mile bicycle facility around San Diego Bay. Currently, approximately 13 miles of bicycle paths are in use on the bikeway. The rest of the facility consists of on-street sections designated as either bicycle lanes or bicycle routes. 

SANDAG is developing additional improvements to the Bayshore Bikeway based on the Bayshore Bikeway Plan, which was adopted by SANDAG in 2006 to identify opportunities to improve the bikeway along the east side of the Bay. The object of the plan is to develop a continuous Class I bike path that would allow bicyclists to ride all the way around San Diego Bay on a dedicated path away from city streets.

Current Activities

Main Street to Palomar Street in the City of Chula Vista. A feasibility study is underway to identify an alignment to connect two existing sections of bike path. The study should be completed by summer 2014, with preliminary engineering and environmental studies starting at that time.

West 32nd Street and Marina Way to 32nd Street and Harbor. Final design is being completed between Bay Marina Drive and Tidelands Avenue in National City and 32nd Street and Harbor Drive in San Diego. Construction of the portion of this bikeway project in the City of San Diego should begin in September 2014. The National City portion will be constructed once railway crossing permits and approvals are obtained. Completion of the section between Bay Marina Drive and the existing bike path that ends at Marin Way and West 32nd Street in National City is being deferred in order to coordinate its development with potential redevelopment on Port District tidelands in this area.

32nd Street to Park Boulevard. Detailed planning for the segment of the Bikeway that would serve Barrio Logan and downtown San Diego is underway and should be completed by December 2014. Preliminary engineering and environmental analysis will begin immediately after that and be completed by June 2016.

Development of the Bayshore Bikeway is guided by the Bayshore Bikeway Working Group, with representation from the five cities around San Diego Bay, the County of San Diego, the San Diego Unified Port District, and the bicycling community. 

More information about the Bayshore Bikeway is available on the Bayshore Bikeway fact sheet.
