The Bayshore Bikeway is a regional corridor that will eventually extend 24 miles around San Diego Bay, providing a vital and scenic connection to major bayfront employers, as well as tourist and recreational destinations. Approximately 16 miles of bike paths have been built to date. The rest of the bikeway consists of on-street sections designated as either bike lanes or bike routes.
SANDAG is developing additional improvements to the Bayshore Bikeway based on the Bayshore Bikeway Plan, which was adopted by SANDAG in 2006 to identify opportunities to improve the bikeway primarily along the east side of the San Diego Bay. The objective is to develop a continuous Class I bike path that would allow bike riders to ride all the way around San Diego Bay on a dedicated path away from city streets.
Development of the Bayshore Bikeway is guided by the Bayshore Bikeway Working Group, with representation from the five cities around San Diego Bay, the County of San Diego, the San Diego Unified Port District, and the bicycling community.
More information is available on the Bayshore Bikeway fact sheet in English and en Español.
Segment 8B: Ada Street to Palomar Street in the cities of Chula Vista and San Diego: the environmental document was adopted by the SANDAG Board of Directors in November 2016 and the project is currently in the final design stage. A planned development near the project will ultimately build the connection between Segment 8B, which will terminate at Ada Street, and the existing bike path at Main Street.
Barrio Logan Segment (32nd Street to Park Boulevard): This segment of the bikeway will stretch 2.5 miles along Harbor Drive between Park Boulevard and 32nd Street, and will connect two existing segments of the bikeway. The SANDAG Transportation Committee approved the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) exemption for this segment on July 6, 2018. The project is currently in the final design phase and staff is working to obtain required permits for the project. The project received approval under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) on December 10, 2018. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2020.
