To encourage safer driving, biking and walking habits, the City of San Diego and Cox Communications created three public service announcements (PSA’s).
Each video supports the City’s Vision Zero safety initiative and #TransitTuesday efforts to increase participation in alternative transportation methods. Vision Zero was adopted by the City Council in 2015 with the goal of eliminating all traffic fatalities and serious injuries in the City by 2025 through education, engineering and enforcement.
Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer explained: “We’ve launched the PSAs and new website to inform our residents of the progress being made and show how the City is using data to inform the decisions we’re making to improve public safety in our neighborhoods.”
SANDAG hosted a groundbreaking ceremony and community celebration to kick-off construction on the Rose Creek Bikeway, Thursday, January 25, 2018.
The Rose Creek Bikeway is part of the Coastal Rail Trail and is being designed as a Class I bike path (completely separated from vehicle traffic) that connects existing sections of the Rose Canyon and Rose Creek bike paths in the City of San Diego.
The bikeway will fill a two-mile gap in the Regional Bike Network between points to the north such as Sorrento Valley, University City, and UC San Diego, and points to the south such as Mission Bay, Pacific Beach, Mission Valley, and Downtown San Diego.
The Rose Creek Bikeway will begin at the north end of Santa Fe Street and connect to the existing bike path at Damon Street and Mission Bay Drive, just a short distance north of the Mike Gotch Memorial Bridge over Rose Inlet.
