Full Closure of Rose Canyon Bike Path Rescheduled Following Rain Delays

Closure to begin Tuesday, December 3 to Pave Final Stretch of New and Improved Bike and Pedestrian Path  
November 27, 2019-- Beginning Tuesday, December 3, the Rose Canyon Bike Path will close for approximately four days as crews pave the final section of the path and remove the temporary ramp installed near Gilman Drive. 
The bike path is anticipated to reopen by 6 p.m. on Friday, December 6.
The closure was originally scheduled to begin on Tuesday, November 19, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather. SANDAG will continue to monitor the weather during the coming days and will provide updates on the status of the newly rescheduled closure dates. If inclement weather is forecasted between Tuesday, December 3 and Friday, December 6, the closure may be postponed.
During the closure, Mid-Coast Trolley crews will provide a “bus bridge,” to shuttle people biking and walking around the construction zone. The bus bridge will be available from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day, and signage will designate the pick-up locations. People biking and walking should plan for extra travel time and expect some delays as shuttles travel between pick-up and drop-off locations. 
Construction to realign the Rose Canyon Bike Path began in 2018 to allow space for new Trolley tracks as part of the Mid-Coast Trolley project. During construction, a temporary bike path was made available while crews constructed a new and improved path. 
A major portion of the newly constructed bike path opened to the public on July 3. Next week’s closure will allow crews to complete the remainder of the path.
*Schedules are subject to change
The Mid-Coast Trolley project will extend UC San Diego Blue Line Trolley service from Downtown San Diego to the University community, serving major activity centers such as Mission Bay, the VA Medical Center, UC San Diego, and University Towne Centre. Nine new stations will be constructed. Major construction work began in 2016, with service anticipated to begin in late 2021.
