Oceanside Coastal Rail Trail
In spring 2014, SANDAG, in cooperation with the City of Oceanside, completed a portion of the planned trail between Oceanside Boulevard and Wisconsin Avenue.
The new bike path
is located on the west side of railroad property owned by the North County Transit District. There is now a continuous bike path from Oceanside Boulevard connecting directly to the Oceanside Transit Center. Class I bike paths are bikeways that are physically separate from vehicular traffic.
The project cost $2.45 million. Close to $650,000 was spent on surveying, mapping, project design, utility coordination, environmental, administration, public outreach, permit fees, construction management, and inspection fees. Construction costs totaled $1.8 million.
About $1.52 million came from the federal Transportation Enhancements program. Another $931,000 came from TransNet, the regional half-cent sales tax for transportation.
