This page will be updated periodically with new information on bike way infrastructure projects in the City of San Diego. We're highlighting projects in the design process, those in construction and newly opened to the public. This is not intended to be a comprehensive list.

Coastal Rail Trail

Project Status: Final Design

Approximately two miles in length, the Coastal Rail Trail will stretch from UC San Diego to the Interstate 5 intersection near La Jolla Colony Drive, connecting to the Rose Canyon Bicycle Path via Gilman Drive. This project will include one-way Class IV protected bikeways along both directions of Gilman Drive, replacing an existing Class II bike lane. The project is currently expected to be completed by 2023 and will serve the Pacific Beach, University City and La Jolla neighborhoods. The project will also include a continuous sidewalk along the west side of Gilman Drive, street lighting, accessibility and traffic signal improvements. Learn more about the Coastal Rail Trail.

In Downtown, Sixth Avenue and Beech Street are being converted to two-way Class IV protected bike lanes. Additionally, the J Street protected bike lane will be extended to 16th Street, and Park Boulevard, and C Street will receive protected bike lanes, as part of the landmark Downtown Mobility Plan. The current phase of the project is approximately two miles in length and expected to be complete by Fall 2020.

Mission Bay Roads Resurfacing

Project Status: Open to Public

The Mission Bay street resurfacing project brings about five miles of buffered and standard (Class II) bike lanes to the Ocean Beach, Point Loma and Pacific Beach communities. This project was completed in May 2020. New bike lanes were installed on West and East Mission Bay Drive, Nimitz Boulevard, Ingraham Street, Quivira Road and Old Sea World Drive. East Mission Bay Drive is especially popular for riders as it connects northern communities like Pacific Beach all the way to Point Loma and goes around Mission Bay Park.

North Harbor Drive

Project Status: Open to Public

In Downtown, the entire length of North Harbor Drive now has expanded buffered bike lanes and green crossing markings at conflict points. Completed in May 2020, this project runs approximately two miles from North Harbor Drive at Nimitz Boulevard to Ash Street. These lanes are great for more experienced riders as an alternative to the nearby Embarcadero path.

University Avenue Complete Street

Project Status: Final Design

The University Avenue Complete Street project includes three new roundabouts, Class II bike lanes and widened sidewalks at University Avenue between Euclid and Fairmont avenues. This will bring improved safety for all modes of travel to the City Heights community. Roundabouts help reduce vehicle speeds and congestion and help people crossing the street stay visible with raised medians. This project supports the City’s Vision Zero goal of zero traffic-related fatalities or severe injuries by 2025 and is expected to be complete by 2024.
