North Park welcomes the 1st of a series of roundabouts that are being added as part of the Bikeway Project. This community enhancement project is designed to add about 4.5 miles of separated, buffered bikeways and neighborhood safety improvements. The project will cost the city $12.2 million dollars and is intended to make walking and biking attractive and safe as it improves neighborhood connectivity between Old Town, Mission Valley, Downtown, North Park and Balboa Park.
More and more San Diegans are choosing active forms of transportation to move around the city during the pandemic. “This project will make it safer and easier for people to walk and bike along commonly traveled streets to visit local businesses and reach destinations such as Downtown San Diego, Balboa Park and Hillcrest,” said SANDAG Vice Chair and Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear. Mayor Blakespear went on to say, "This project will provide safe and convenient options for people to continue to choose active transportation, even when the health crisis is far behind us.” SANDAG has reported seeing a 20% increase in bike ridership as compared to last year. San Diego City Councilman Chris Ward said, “These much-needed improvements to the heart of the city will enhance our community and provide accessibility and safety for people walking and biking.”
This project is expected to be completed in 2022. I look forward to riding around the neighborhood on our new safe bike paths.
