Slow Streets Program

Construction signs on a newly paved road

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.

Current Location

  • Pacific Beach - Diamond Street from Mission Boulevard to Haines Street

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will these changes go into effect?

Designated streets will begin to see temporary barriers and signage starting April 30, 2020.

What does this mean for me?

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.
