Complete Boulevard Planning Study

Map of project areaPhoto of El Cajon Boulevard Intersection

The Complete Boulevard Planning Study will work with the City Heights and Talmadge communities to propose multi-modal mobility infrastructure improvements within the El Cajon Boulevard corridor between Highland Avenue and 50th Street, and will produce a planning study that includes preliminary engineering drawings for the highest priority improvements. The mobility infrastructure improvements envisioned for the corridor are intended to help realize the transformative potential of the Rapid Bus service in Mid-City by creating a more walkable, bikeable, and transit-friendly street corridor. The section of El Cajon Boulevard that is the focus of this project encompasses the Little Saigon District, and this planning study will identify urban design improvements that will help highlight this district and enhance the corridor's existing character.

The development of the Complete Boulevard Planning Study will incorporate outreach to the City Heights and Talmadge communities and stakeholder groups within this area, and will strive to engage area residents of all ages, primary language, and ability. This project has been funded with a grant from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) and the El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association.
