Build NCC | Bike, Pedestrian, and Community Enhancements

Linking local and regional bike and pedestrian trails to improve coastal access is a key component of Build NCC, which includes projects aimed at improving east-west/north-south connectivity for pedestrians and people on bikes.

Some improvements included under Build NCC include:

  • Building the 10-mile North Coast Bike Trail, which includes new east/west and north/­south bike and pedestrian connections from Solana Beach to Encinitas and a new trail bridge suspended from the San Elijo Lagoon highway bridge.
  • Adding bike/pedestrian paths at the Interstate 5 interchanges at Encinitas Boulevard and Santa Fe Drive.
  • Adding a new pedestrian undercrossing at the south end of the San Elijo Lagoon.
  • Improve access for people walking and biking at the Chesterfield Drive crossing.
