Public Comments Wanted About Proposed Bridge
By Kelly Makley, Rose Creek Watershed Coordinator
The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition has received a grant to improve San Diego’s Regional Trail Network. They are working to build a bicycle and pedestrian bridge under Highways 5 and 52 that would connect riders and walkers in Rose Canyon and San Clemente Canyon (Marian Bear Memorial Park) to the Rose Canyon Bicycle Trail. Currently, users are forced to detour or cross the railroad tracks illegally. Ultimately, this bridge would enhance the ability for riders and walkers from University City and Clairemont to reach Mission Bay.
The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition is seeking ideas and comments about the proposed bridge. Please join them at the upcoming Open House Meetings:
Friday, 9/21 4:00 PM – 6:30 PM
Saturday, 10/13 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
The meetings are tentatively planned to take place at the proposed bridge site on the Rose Canyon Bicycle Trail. To get there, park at the end of Santa Fe Avenue and walk or ride a quarter-mile north to the site. Please check the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition’s website at www.sdcbc.org for more information and to confirm the location prior to the date. Or, contact the Rose Creek Watershed Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or comments.
This project is part of a comprehensive effort to enhance the Rose Creek Watershed, which includes both Rose and San Clemente creeks which drain into De Anza Cove at the north end of Mission Bay.
