Progress Continues on the Rose Creek Bikeway
SANDAG March 2020
Over the past several months, SANDAG construction crews made significant progress constructing the 2-mile long Rose Creek Bikeway that runs along Santa Fe Street between the cul-de-sac at the northern end (south of SR 52) and the new Mission Bay Drive under crossing (north of Garnet Avenue). Recent construction activities on Santa Fe Street included:
- Working on utilities and relocating electrical power service
- Installing curb and gutter, green street storm water treatment features, and driveway improvements along the east side
- Forming and pouring curb and gutter on the west side
Other construction milestones achieved on the Rose Creek Bikeway project over the last few months included demolition of existing curb and gutters, continued drainage improvements and utility work, landscaping, and invasive plant removal around the trail and pedestrian bridge.
While significant progress has been made to date, there are many critical items that need to be completed before the new bikeway will be safe to ride. SANDAG reminds potential users that the entire Rose Creek Bikeway project area is an active construction zone and trespassing on the path is prohibited. The project is expected to be complete and open to the public in the fall of 2020. To learn more about the project, please visit KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/RoseCreekBikeway.

Buffered Bike Lanes to be Added to Hwy. 101 in Cardiff
Beginning in February 2020, work will begin on the addition of buffered bike lanes on State Highway 101 from the Cardiff’s southern border with Solana Beach up to Chesterfield Drive. This work will impact both vehicle and bicycling traffic traveling in both directions during the construction period, which is expected to end in May 2020.
Specifically, the South Highway 101 Safety and Mobility Improvements project will add buffered bike lanes with bollards on both sides of the 101 between Chesterfield Drive and the City boundary just south of the South Cardiff State Beach parking lot. The project will restripe the pavement with narrower traffic lanes as a traffic calming measure. When finished, this project will provide a safe, contiguous bicycle network for recreational and experienced users.
The company doing the work is Blue Pacific Engineering and Construction. We wanted to make you aware of this project and keep you updated during construction. Thank you for your patience during the construction of these buffered bike lanes.
We’re proud to have won an award for the San Elijo Corridor Conceptual Plan from the American Society of Landscape Architects (ALSA). Their mission is to lead, to educate and to participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning and artful design of our cultural and natural environments.
For more than a decade, the City of Encinitas has been developing a major streetscape project commonly known as Leucadia Streetscape, to enhance mobility, parking, and add traffic calming measures along the North Coast Highway 101. The Leucadia Streetscape infrastructure project also includes many elements to improve traffic flow, encourage pedestrian and bicycle use, as well as add approximately 1,000 new trees in addition to the preservation of 92.5% of the existing tree canopy for a total of 1,113 trees growing along the 101 corridor.
Groundbreaking is scheduled to begin in Fall 2020.
Del Mar wraps up long-awaited Streetscape project

Mayor Dave Druker said residents have so far been “pretty enthusiastic” about the final product. He said the outcome drives home the idea of Camino Del Mar becoming “more of a parkway than just a highway.”
“Those trees will slowly mature and make it even more lush,” he said. “ … I think most of the people agree that it is pretty much what they were looking for.”
During a 10-month, $8.3 million construction program in 2019, the Downtown Streetscape Project transformed the aging and mismatched surfaces of Del Mar’s business district with new sidewalks, trees, landscaping, street furniture, pavement and lane striping. The project included major upgrades of street lighting, drainage and irrigation on Camino del Mar between Plaza and 9th streets.
The Downtown Streetscape Project will bring new sidewalks, paving, bike lanes, crosswalks, trees and landscaping to seven blocks of Camino del Mar between 9th and Plaza streets.
