Bayshore Bikeway

The Bayshore Bikeway is a regional corridor that will eventually extend 24 miles around San Diego Bay, providing a vital and scenic connection to major bayfront employers, as well as tourist and recreational destinations. Approximately 15 miles of bicycle paths have been built to date. The rest of the bikeway 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 primarily along the east side of the San Diego Bay. The objective 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

Construction began on the first phase of Segment 4 in October 2014 along Harbor Drive from Vesta Street to 32nd Street. The remainder of Segments 4 and 5, from Vesta Street to Marina Way and West 32nd Street in National City, will be constructed once right-of-way agreements for three railroad crossings are finalized and the Board of Port Commissioners approves the bikeway portion on Port tidelands. A total of $5.35 million has been secured to fund this work, including a $2.5 million grant from the California State Coastal Conservancy, federal Transportation Enhancement funds, and the regional TransNet half-cent sales tax for transportation.

J Street to Palomar Street in the City of Chula Vista. Maintenance was completed in January 2015 on the Bayshore Bikeway segment located between J and Palomar streets in Chula Vista. The work cleared overgrown vegetation from the bikeway. Bike path repairs will follow in spring 2015. The bike path will be closed for safety while work is underway; posted signs will guide pedestrians and bike riders to a nearby detour route along Bay Boulevard.

Main Street to Palomar Street in the City of Chula Vista. A feasibility study has identified an alignment to connect two existing sections of bike path and preliminary design is 30 percent complete. Design work continues and environmental studies are underway.

32nd Street to Park Boulevard. Work is underway to develop an alignment and conceptual design for this 2.5 mile segment of the bikeway.

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.
