Temporary Delays on Santa Fe Street Scheduled for Rose Creek Bikeway Bridge Installation

July 30, 2018--  Motorists and cyclists will experience temporary delays on Santa Fe Street on Tuesday, July 31, and Wednesday, August 1, as crews install a bridge for the Rose Creek Bikeway.

The bike and pedestrian bridge installation will occur each day from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., or until all bridge sections are installed and Santa Fe Street is secure for the evening. Construction crews will place the south half of the bridge first, followed by the north half. Activities will include bolting and welding sections of the bridge together, then hoisting the bridge into place by crane.

Travelers can expect trucks and heavy machinery on Santa Fe Street during construction. Flaggers will be present, and one lane of traffic will remain open on Santa Fe Street. Traffic controls will be in place to alert motorists and cyclists of the work. Travelers are asked to use caution near the area while construction is underway.

The bridge is anticipated to be open and accessible to pedestrians and cyclists beginning fall 2019.

This work is related to the Rose Creek Bikeway project. The Rose Creek Bikeway is part of the Coastal Rail Trail and is a Class 1 bike path (completely separated from vehicle traffic). It connects existing sections of the Rose Canyon and Rose Creek bike paths in the City of San Diego. The 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.
