We want your Comments about a Proposed Bike and Pedestrian Bridge over the Railroad Tracks and under Highways 5 and 52! Please Join Us! For the flyer, click here.
The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition (a member of the Rose Creek Watershed Alliance) received a grant that will help improve San Diego’s Regional Trail Network. They are working to build a bicycle and pedestrian bridge under Highways 5 and 52 and trail connections to both canyons.
This vital link in the trail circulation system was recommended in the Rose Creek Watershed Opportunities Assessment (Rec 2.5.5) to allow trail users in Rose and San Clemente Canyons to safely and legally cross the railroad tracks to connect to the Rose Canyon Bicycle Trail. Ultimately, this bridge would enhance the ability for riders and walkers from University City and Clairemont to reach Mission Bay Park.
The goal is to provide improved safe access from the upper watershed to Mission Bay so that pedestrians and cyclists can travel the watershed to the beach and Mission Bay without having to cross a road. See the Conservancy staff report at here. Contact the Bicycle Coalition firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate in the stakeholder process for this key trail.
The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition is seeking ideas and comments about the proposed bridge. Please join us at the upcoming Open House Meetings:
Friday, 9/21 from 4:00 PM – 6:30 PM
Saturday, 10/13 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
The meetings are tentatively planned to take place at the proposed bridge site on the Rose Canyon Bicycle Trail. To get there, park at the end of Santa Fe Avenue and walk or ride a quarter-mile north to the site.
Please check the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition’s website for more information and to confirm the location prior to the date. Or, contact the Rose Creek Watershed Coordinator with questions or comments.
We hope to see you there!
