Uptown Bikeways

The Uptown Bikeways project will enhance neighborhood connectivity between Uptown, Old Town, Mission Valley, Downtown San Diego, North Park, and Balboa Park; promote active living and healthy communities; and make streets safer for people who bike, walk, drive, and take transit. Features include streetscape enhancements and amenities that will make roadways more pleasant for people of all ages and abilities to walk or ride a bike for everyday trips. The project also will create links to the larger bikeway network being built throughout the region. The Uptown Bikeways include five segments:


The Uptown Bikeways project is one of the first high priority projects identified in the San Diego Regional Bike Plan to be funded for implementation. 

Project Goals

The project is designed to meet the following goals, which were established with input from a 38-member Community Advisory Group:

  • Mobility: increase travel choices, connect communities
  • Experience: improve travel safety for everyone, create an exceptional biking experience
  • Community: build on and support related community initiatives
  • Placemaking: enhance community identity and public spaces
  • Economic Development: improve public infrastructure and strengthen opportunities for community and business development

Project Status

After several years of planning, community outreach, and project refinement, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) exemption for Segments 1-4 of the Uptown Bikeways project on July 22, 2016. Segments 1-4 of the project will move forward and are being phased for final design and construction. Additionally, preliminary engineering and environmental work has begun on part of Segment 5, the portion of the Park Boulevard Bikeway from Robinson Avenue to Upas Street. The section of Segment 5 from Upas Street to Village Place is still in the planning phase and will be completed at a future date.

While work continues on the entire project, Segment 1: Fourth and Fifth Avenue Bikeways is anticipated to begin construction first, in 2019.

For more information, view the project's fact sheet in English and en Español. SANDAG will continue to work with community stakeholders during the final design and construction of all segments. Project updates will be posted under the Notices tab or you can sign up to be added to our email list.

Information about past community meetings and the project planning phase is available under the Get Involved tab.
