Orange Bikeway is one of seven segments planned as part of the North Park |
Mid-City Bikeways, which will be comprised of approximately 13 miles of bikeways
and connect the North Park and Mid-City neighborhoods. The proposed Orange
Bikeway will provide a vital connection for residents to
walk and bike between vibrant communities within San Diego’s urban core – North
Park and City Heights. View this project's fact sheet in English and en Español.
Bikeway will be 2.1 miles and will run along Orange Avenue, between 32nd
Street and Estrella Avenue. The proposed bikeway will also provide important
connections to several regional bikeways including Howard Bikeway to the
west, University Bikeway to the east, and Central Avenue Bikeway in the center.
features include buffered bike lanes, median island traffic diverters, neighborhood
traffic circles, curb extensions, and other traffic calming measures designed
to make the streets more pleasant for everyone – people who walk, bike, work,
and live there. The project will help fulfill the vision laid
out in the San Diego Regional Bike Plan to make riding a bike a safer and more convenient choice for everyday travel.
Project Update - April 2019
SANDAG hosted an open house and public hearing for
the Howard – Orange Bikeway on July 27, 2017, where attendees
were invited to learn more about the project and provide written and verbal
comments. In order to keep the project moving forward, SANDAG advanced the
Howard Avenue portion of the project in early 2018, while the Orange Avenue
portion was further studied to determine the feasibility of additional traffic
calming measures, including median island traffic diverters at select
intersections. Median island traffic diverters would calm traffic along Orange
Avenue by reducing cut-through traffic while maintaining local access. The
potential use of these traffic calming measures will ultimately be subject to
review and approval by the City of San Diego.
review of the proposed Orange Bikeway project is currently in progress. Because
additional traffic calming measures were added to the project design, a revised
Traffic and Safety Impact Assessment is required for the proposed Orange Bikeway.
Once complete, it will be made available for public comment at an additional
open house and public hearing.
