Howard - Orange Bikeway

RenderingThe proposed Howard – Orange Bikeway will provide a vital connection for residents to walk and bike between vibrant communities within San Diego’s urban core – North Park and City Heights. Proposed features include buffered bike lanes, neighborhood traffic circles, curb extensions, and traffic calming measures designed to make the streets more pleasant for everyone – people who walk, bike, work, and live there.

The Howard – Orange Bikeway will run along Howard Avenue, between Park Boulevard and 32nd Street, and along Orange Avenue between 32nd Street and Estrella Avenue. The proposed bikeway will also provide important connections to several regional bikeways including the Georgia – Meade Bikeway to the west, the University Bikeway to the east, and the Central Avenue Bikeway in the center. 

The Howard – Orange Bikeway is one of six segments planned as part of the North Park | Mid-City Bikeways, which will add approximately 13 miles of bike boulevards and protected bikeways and connect the North Park and Mid-City neighborhoods. The project will help fulfill the vision laid out in the San Diego Regional Bike Plan to make riding a bike a more convenient and safer choice for everyday travel. 

The North Park | Mid-City Bikeways project is a vital part of the regional bike network, GO by BIKE, and a high priority project funded through the Regional Bike Plan Early Action Program. The Howard – Orange segment is currently completing the environmental and preliminary engineering phase. Final design is scheduled to occur in 2017-2019, and construction is anticipated to begin in 2019.

The SANDAG Transportation Committee is anticipated to consider whether the proposed project is exempt from CEQA at its September 15, 2017, meeting. Comments collected at the July 27, 2017, public hearing and open house, as well as written responses to those comments, will be provided to the Transportation Committee for its consideration prior to their September 15, 2017, meeting.
