SANDAG said the idea behind this project is to provide San Diegans with an additional reasonably priced and secure option for getting around.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. — Officers from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) were joined Tuesday by Indigenous leaders and bike advocates to enjoy the start of construction on the Pershing Bikeway project.

The president of SANDAG, who leads the project, may also be the mayor of Encinitas. Mayor Catherine Blakespear said the same project in her group had helped immensely.

“It allows our city to be accessible to people, it allows them to enjoy the city and the outdoors, improve their physical and mental health, reduce our greenhouse gas emissions – there is literally has no downside to it. But, whatever those projects are, it can be hard to get started,” Blakespear said.

Mayor Blakespear released the next statement on her Twitter Tuesday morning.

Last summer drivers killed a cyclist and an individual on a scooter in two separate events on Pershing Drive, which local leaders said could not happen again.

SANDAG said the idea behind this project is to provide San Diegans with an additional reasonably priced and secure option for getting around. The team said the project will help realize the imagination and foresight specified by the San Diego Regional Bike Plan, which aims to make riding a motorcycle a safer and more convenient alternative for a commute. regular.

When full, the two.3-mile Pershing Bike Path is intended to improve north-south connectivity for people biking and walking through Balboa Park and between North Park and downtown San Diego by creating a separate cycle path in both directions, buffered cycle paths and a path for individual rides.

The approximately $13.4 million Pershing Bikeway project is funded by TransNet, the half-cent regional transportation sales tax administered by SANDAG.
