SAN DIEGO–A series of overnight closures will go into effect along the Rose Canyon Bike Path. The closures will allow crews to landscape areas along the bike path and are necessary due to limited construction access.
The closures began Sunday to Thursday, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. Work has been scheduled during nighttime hours to pose as little impact as possible to pedestrians and cyclists. Due to the anticipated low impact, shuttle service will not be provided during the closures.
The approximately one-and-a-half-mile Rose Canyon Bike Path runs along I-5 from the northernmost point of Santa Fe Street to Gilman Drive/La Jolla Colony Drive. The recently upgraded bike path reopened to the public in July 2019, after being relocated to accommodate construction of the Mid-Coast Trolley project.
The relocation of the bike path is one of several efforts constructed in conjunction with the Mid-Coast Trolley project. The newly completed Elvira to Morena Double Track project also was constructed concurrently with the Trolley. The project was completed earlier this summer and added a second track to a segment of the Los Angeles-San Luis Obispo-San Diego (LOSSAN) rail corridor. Once completed, the Trolley will run adjacent to the bike path and LOSSAN railway as it travels along Rose Canyon.
The Mid-Coast Trolley project will extend Blue Line Trolley service from Santa Fe Depot in Downtown San Diego north to the University community, serving major activity centers such as Mission Bay Park, the VA Medical Center, UC San Diego, and University Towne Centre. Major construction work began in 2016, with service anticipated to begin in late 2021.
