NEW: Traffic and Safety Impact Assessment

SANDAG published a Traffic and Safety Impact Assessment for the project on February 9, 2018. Preparation of this assessment is required before the SANDAG Board of Directors can make a determination that the proposed project is exempt from CEQA under Public Resources Code Section 21080.20.5.

Comments collected at the public hearing and open house, and responses to those comments will be provided to the Transportation Committee for consideration before the April 20, 2018, meeting.

Project Overview

Two bikeways will be constructed along SR 15: the SR 15 Commuter Bikeway, which opened to the public in August 2017, and the Central Avenue Bikeway, currently in preliminary engineering. Once completed, the bikeways will connect and stretch 2.2 miles between Camino Del Rio South and Landis Street along SR 15.

Central Avenue BikewayThe Central Avenue Bikeway will provide a safe connection to many destinations within the San Diego communities of Kensington and City Heights, including three major business and transit corridors, two parks, a skate plaza, community center, and three schools. The 1.2 mile bikeway will begin in Kensington where the SR 15 Commuter Bikeway ends at Adams Avenue and continue south, parallel to SR 15, along Terrace and Central avenues to Landis Street.

Envisioned as a bike boulevard, the project will calm traffic and enhance intersection safety with improvements such as neighborhood traffic circles, curb extensions, crosswalks, and signs.  In addition to making it easier to walk and bike, streetscape enhancements will help beautify and quiet neighborhood streets, thereby benefiting all residents.

More information is available on the Central Avenue Bikeway fact sheet in English and en Español, and you can learn more about the project at these upcoming community group presentations and events.
