The Mission Hills and Old Town Bikeways project is one of five segments planned as part of the Uptown Bikeways, which will enhance neighborhood connectivity between Uptown, Old Town, Mission Valley, Downtown San Diego, North Park, and Balboa Park.
The Mission Hills Bikeway project consists of separated bikeways and buffered bike lanes on University Avenue from Third Avenue to Washington Street connecting the Hillcrest and Mission Hills neighborhoods. The Old Town Bikeway project consists of shared lane markings along Congress Street and San Diego Avenue from the Old Town Transit Center to Noell Street.
The Mission Hills Bikeway includes traffic calming measures and improvements for people walking, such as neighborhood traffic circles and speed cushions. The Old Town Bikeway includes buffered bike lanes and shared lane markings. Shared lane markings and wayfinding signage would be installed on San Diego Avenue from Hortensia Street to Congress Street and on Congress Street from San Diego Avenue to Mason Street. Buffered bike lanes would also be installed on San Diego Avenue from Noell Street to Hortensia Street and on Congress Street from Mason Street to Taylor Street. Buffered bike lanes are conventional bike lanes combined with a painted buffer that increases the distance between people on bikes and the adjacent motor vehicle travel lane and/or parking lane.
The Mission Hills and Old Town Bikeways segment is currently in the final design phase, which is anticipated to be completed in 2020. Please check the Notices tab for project updates or sign up to be added to our email list.
