Two bikeways will be constructed along SR 15: the SR 15 Commuter Bikeway, which opened to the public in August 2017, and the Central Avenue Bikeway, currently in the final design phase. Once completed, the bikeways will connect and stretch 2.2 miles between Camino Del Rio South and Landis Street along SR 15.
The Central Avenue Bikeway will provide a safe connection to many destinations within the San Diego communities of Kensington and City Heights, including three major business and transit corridors, two parks, a skate plaza, community center, and three schools. The 1.2 mile bikeway will begin in Kensington where the SR 15 Commuter Bikeway ends at Adams Avenue and continue south, parallel to SR 15, along Terrace and Central avenues to Landis Street.
Envisioned as a bike boulevard, the project will calm traffic and enhance intersection safety with improvements such as neighborhood traffic circles, curb extensions, crosswalks, and signs. In addition to making it easier to walk and bike, streetscape enhancements will help beautify and quiet neighborhood streets, thereby benefiting all residents.
SANDAG published a Traffic and Safety Impact Assessment for the project on February 9, 2018, and hosted an open house and public hearing for the Central Avenue Bikeway project on February 26, 2018. Visit our Get Involved page to learn more and view materials from past community group presentations and events. The Central Avenue Bikeway is currently in final design. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2020.
