The Uptown Regional Bike Corridor Project will create connections within neighborhoods, improve streets, and create links to the larger bike network being built throughout the region. The project will provide on-street bicycle facilities from Old Town and Mission Valley through Uptown to Downtown; it also will build a facility from Uptown to North Park and University Heights and then up to Balboa Park. The Uptown corridors were identified in the San Diego Regional Bike Plan (Bike Plan). The Uptown project includes one of the first groups of high priority projects identified in the Bike Plan to be funded for implementation.
The Uptown project is now in the design phase. During this phase alignment and design alternatives will be analyzed through a collaborative, community-based process. The design phase includes four major stages—kick off, existing conditions analysis, design alternatives analysis, and preferred design. After a preferred design has been identified, the project will move forward to the construction phase.
Technical Advisory Group
The Uptown Regional Bike Corridor Technical Advisory Group, made up of city engineers and planners, will provide input to the design team. Other agencies, such as District 11 of the California Department of Transportation, also will be asked to contribute input at key stages in the process.
Community Advisory Group
The Uptown Regional Bike Corridor Community Advisory Group was formed to provide input on issues, opportunities, and alternatives and share information with the larger community. More information, including upcoming and past meeting details, is available under the Community Advisory Group
Community workshops also will be held at the alternatives analysis and preferred design stages to engage the broader community in discussing the project.
In addition to Advisory Group meetings and community workshops, all community members are encouraged to participate in disseminating information and collecting input from their own personal and professional networks. Please contact the SANDAG project manager below to learn more about how to participate.
News and information about this project’s progress will be posted to the the Notices
tab as they occur.
