SANDAG is scheduled to talk about a project that would lead to a new, safer pathway for bicyclists who wish to ride between the Mid-City and Mission Valley. Today's discussion would allow for a $1.8M budget adjustment. Final approval could happen as soon as January 2015.
Currently the only routes connecting neighborhoods like Kensington, Talmadge, and Normal Heights are Texas St. and Fairmount Ave. Anyone that has biked or driven knows that cyclists have to contend with high speed motorists and a steep uphill climb.
The proposal, State Route 15 Commuter Bike Facility Project, will add a concrete barrier along Route 15 to safely buffer bikers and motorists.The proposed facility will connect to bike routes along Camino del Rio South, Adams Avenue, and the bike route that runs parallel to SR 15 from Landis Street to Adams Avenue
