Vision Zero: University Avenue
As part of last year’s budget process, staff in the City’s Transportation and Stormwater Department committed to evaluating the corridor with the highest concentration of crashes and designing engineering improvements.
Since then, City staff determined the ½ mile section of University Avenue—between Fairmount and Euclid Avenues—to be the most problematic with the highest number of crashes. City traffic engineers, in partnership with the offices of Mayor Faulconer and Councilwoman Marti Emerald, responded by organizing the University Avenue Working Group with the mission to “Improve safety for all modes as part of Vision Zero.” Circulate San Diego has been pleased to participate in this group.
To review the alternatives and to take the survey, check out the project website.

Critical Injury of Chargers Intern Highlights the Need for Vision Zero in San Diego
SAN DIEGO (August 8, 2016) -- 23-year-old J’Ron Erby, an intern for the San Diego Chargers, was struck while walking earlyFriday in a hit-and-run crash on the 900 block of Garnet Avenue.
This terrible collision is a reminder of how important it is for our region’s leaders to commit to Vision Zero, a campaign to make our streets safe from serious injuries and deaths. Garnet Avenue is one of the eight most dangerous corridors in the City of San Diego, as identified by research from Circulate San Diego in our groundbreaking Vision Zero report:http://www.circulatesd.org/visionzerosd.
The Press Release was picked up and used by East County Magazine and the San Diego Union-Tribune to bring awareness to Circulate's Vision Zero efforts.
