Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Rose Creek Bikeway Project

SANDAG, as lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), has prepared a draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the Rose Creek Bikeway project.

The proposed project includes 1.3 miles of protected bike lanes within the City of San Diego right-of-way (City ROW) on the west side of Santa Fe Street (on-street improvements), and 0.8 miles of bike lanes along the eastern bank of Rose Creek (off-street improvements).

The on-street improvements would connect with the existing Rose Canyon Bicycle Path to the north of the proposed project and include a two-foot shoulder adjacent to the I-5 fence with a two-foot raised concrete median between the Santa Fe Street traffic lanes and the bike lanes. The proposed project would remove informal on-street parking on the dirt shoulder of Santa Fe Street. Santa Fe Street would be widened to the east within the existing City ROW, which would require a retaining wall up to six feet in height. The off-street improvements would consist of a 10-foot wide concrete path with two-foot shoulders on each side.

The off-street portion would start just south of the Santa Fe Street bridge over Rose Creek on a pre-fabricated, steel bridge approximately 240 feet in length, which would be parallel to the existing bridge. The bike path would continue along the eastern bank of Rose Creek on an earthen bench behind existing businesses fronting Santa Fe and Damon Streets. The bike path would then cross under the I-5 freeway bridge over Rose Creek and connect with the existing Rose Creek Bike Path.

In accordance with CEQA, this public notice officially notifies the general public, public agencies, and interested individuals and organizations that a 30-day public review period will begin on December 15, 2015.

Written comments regarding the adequacy of the draft MND must be received no later than January 14, 2016, and should be mailed to Lauren Esposito at SANDAG, 401 B Street, Suite 800, San Diego, CA 92101 or emailed to
