The proposed Monroe Bikeway will provide a vital connection in the Kensington – Talmadge and College Area communities for residents to walk and bike between vibrant communities within San Diego’s urban core. Proposed features include a mini-roundabout, buffered bike lane, neighborhood traffic circles, curb extensions, and traffic calming measures designed to make the streets more pleasant for everyone – people who walk, bike, work, and live there.
The Monroe Bikeway begins at the intersection of Fairmount Avenue and Meade Avenue, then runs along 44th Street from Meade Avenue to Monroe Avenue, and along Monroe Avenue from 44th Street to Collwood Boulevard. The Monroe Bikeway connects to the Georgia – Meade Bikeway at Fairmount Avenue, providing a continuous east/west connection to Kensington, Normal Heights, North Park, Mission Valley, and City Heights communities while also connecting Talmadge to the regional bikeway network. The eastern end of the bikeway connects to bike lanes on Collwood Boulevard that lead to San Diego State University.
The Monroe Bikeway is one of six segments planned as part of the North Park | Mid-City Bikeways, which will add approximately 13 miles of bikeways and connect the North Park and Mid-City neighborhoods. The project will help fulfill the vision laid out in the San Diego Regional Bike Plan to make riding a bike a more convenient and safer choice for everyday travel, and will help accomplish the goals of the City of San Diego’s Bicycle Master Plan and Climate Action Plan. The North Park | Mid-City Bikeways project is a vital part of the regional bike network, GO by BIKE, and a high priority project funded through the Regional Bike Plan Early Action Program.
The Monroe segment is currently in the environmental and preliminary engineering phase.
