This initiative is intended to create safe shared spaces allowing residents get around their neighborhoods for essential travel while maintaining physical distance from others. Slow Streets San Diego supports the City's Vision Zero Program, which aims to make our streets and sidewalks safer for all road users.
Slow Streets will not impact emergency vehicles, deliveries, public transit services or residents that must use these streets to access a final destination. Temporary road openings will be implemented as a phased approach.
Expect to see temporary barriers and signage diverting traffic for single travel or parking lanes and indicating the presence of pedestrians and bicyclists. Access to driveways and deliveries will be maintained for residents and businesses.
Designated streets will begin to see temporary barriers and signage starting April 30, 2020.
If you're a driver reaching a final destination on these streets:
Please slow down and safely share the road with the expectation that people walking, parents with strollers, bicyclists, or wheelchair users will be in the street.
If you're walking or biking on these streets:
Please remember to keep six feet of distance from others at all times and wear a mask. This is not an opportunity for social gathering. Help the City maintain the efficacy of these closures by keeping signs intact.
