Bikeway & Walkway Projects
With more than 1,340 miles of bikeways in the San Diego region, everything is just two wheels away. One of our key priorities in planning our region’s transportation system is providing an extensive network of bikeways and walkways to ensure biking, walking, and rolling are safe and convenient forms of everyday travel.
Guiding the development of the SANDAG Bike Plan Early Action Program (EAP) through the year 2050, our bikeway and walkway projects will have a major positive impact on the quality of life in the San Diego region by reducing traffic congestion, improving air quality, reducing the impact of climate change, and enhancing public health and livability. The Bike EAP is creating an interconnected regional network of bike corridors that will enable residents to bike safely on more direct and convenient routes within and between major regional destinations and activity centers.
The Bike EAP will be funded by TransNet, the regional half-cent sales tax for transportation approved by San Diego County voters. By dedicating local TransNet funds for bike projects, the region is well-positioned to compete for state and federal funding, enable us to complete more bike projects and reap even greater economic, health, and mobility benefits. SANDAG will maximize funding opportunities from other sources by moving all the bike projects toward construction on a rolling timeline, so at any given time there would be shovel-ready projects.
