Pershing Bikeway

The 2.3-mile Pershing Bikeway will improve north-south connectivity and enhance access to Balboa Park for people who bike, walk, or roll between North Park and Downtown San Diego. Features include separated two-way lanes, buffers from vehicle traffic, and a walking path. The bikeway will create more comfortable and convenient biking and walking conditions for people of all ages and abilities.

It will begin in North Park at the intersection of Utah and Landis streets and run south along Utah Street, connecting with Pershing Drive at Upas Street. From there, the route will travel through Balboa Park on Pershing Drive and connect to C Street in Downtown San Diego.

The Pershing Bikeway is an important part of the Regional Active Transportation Early Action Program which was adopted by the SANDAG Board of Directors in September 2013. The project is also consistent with the City of San Diego’s Climate Action Plan, Vision Zero Plan, and Bicycle Master Plan.

Project Status and Funding

The Pershing Bikeway project is funded by TransNet, the region’s voter-approved, half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements administered by SANDAG.

Construction on the Pershing Bikeway began in early 2022 and is expected to open to the public in summer 2024.
