The proposed 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 HeightsView this project's fact sheet in English and en Español.

The Orange 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.

Proposed 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.  

Environmental 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.
