The Mission Hills and Old Town
Bikeways project is one of five segments planned as part of the Uptown
Bikeways, which will enhance neighborhood connectivity between Uptown, Old
Town, Mission Valley, Downtown San Diego, North Park, and Balboa Park.
The project is comprised of two segments – the Mission Hills
segment and the Old Town segment – that will add approximately 1.8 miles of
bikeways designed to make the streets more pleasant
for people who bike, walk, and drive.
The Mission Hills segment will extend approximately
0.7 miles along West University Avenue between Ibis Street and First Avenue. This
project will update existing shared lane travel markings ("sharrows") on West
University Avenue with proposed features including neighborhood traffic
circles, speed cushions,
and other traffic calming measures designed to
improve safety and visibility for people biking, walking, scooting, and rolling.
The Old Town segment will extend
approximately 1.1 miles along Congress Street between the Old Town Transit
Center and Ampudia Street and along San Diego Avenue from Ampudia Street to
Noell Street. Proposed features of the Old Town Bikeway include buffered bike
lanes, shared lane markings (“sharrows”), and two-stage left turn boxes. Buffered
bike lanes are conventional bike lanes combined with a painted buffer that
increases the distance between people on bikes and the adjacent motor vehicle
travel lane and/or parking lane.
The Mission Hills and Old Town Bikeways project is currently in the preliminary
design phase. Please check the Notices tab for project updates or sign up to be added to our email list.
