Encinitas Pedestrian Crossing at Sante Fe

The Santa Fe Drive project created a new rail bridge and pedestrian undercrossing beneath the tracks between Highway 101 and Vulcan Avenue, west of Santa Fe Drive. As part of the project, a new crosswalk and traffic signal on Highway 101 were installed to increase pedestrian safety.

The Santa Fe crossing complies with the American Disabilities Act and provides safe connections not just for pedestrians, but also bicyclists to the planned Coastal Rail Trail. With the construction of the crossing, access to beaches, schools, commercial areas, and residential neighborhoods across a very active rail line has been dramatically improved.  

Construction Completed

Construction began on January 30, 2012, and the project opened to the public on February 27, 2013.
