Monroe Bikeway

NEW: Bikeway Enhancements Questionnaire

As SANDAG moves closer to finalizing the design on bikeways in the North Park and Mid-City areas, we are seeking your input on aesthetic elements that could be included in these projects.

There are several locations with traffic calming features, such as curb extensions and neighborhood traffic circles, where there is an opportunity to add aesthetic elements to help beautify the community and provide a sense of place. The City of San Diego requires project elements that fall within their guidelines of “typical” materials and standard maintenance efforts. All options proposed in this questionnaire are consistent with these requirements. 

This questionnaire should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your input is highly valuable to our planning efforts. Results will be analyzed in aggregate so that individual responses will remain anonymous. Please complete the questionnaire by March 16, 2018. Thank you in advance for your input.

Project Overview

The proposed Monroe Bikeway will provide a vital connection in the Kensington – Talmadge and College Area communities for residents to walk and bike between vibrant communities within San Diego’s urban core. Proposed features include a mini-roundabout, buffered bike lane, 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. 

Monroe Bikeway

The Monroe Bikeway begins at the intersection of Fairmount Avenue and Meade Avenue, then runs along 44th Street from Meade Avenue to Monroe Avenue, and along Monroe Avenue from 44th Street to Collwood Boulevard. The Monroe Bikeway connects to the Georgia – Meade Bikeway at Fairmount Avenue, providing a continuous east/west connection to Kensington, Normal Heights, North Park, Mission Valley, and City Heights communities while also connecting Talmadge to the regional bikeway network. The eastern end of the bikeway connects to bike lanes on Collwood Boulevard that lead to San Diego State University.

The Monroe Bikeway is one of six segments planned as part of the North Park | Mid-City Bikeways, which will add approximately 13 miles of 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, and will help accomplish the goals of the City of San Diego’s Bicycle Master Plan and Climate Action Plan. 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 Monroe segment is currently completing the environmental and preliminary engineering phase. Final design is scheduled to occur in 2017-2018, and construction is scheduled to begin in 2019.
