RECAP - Broadway and C Street Walk Audit

On November 21st, Circulate San Diego and the Downtown San Diego Partnership were joined by 20 professionals, residents, and urban enthusiasts on a walk audit along Broadway and C Street. These transit-rich corridors provided an abundance of discussion content. Common themes included:

  • There is a need for additional wayfinding for the various mobility options and for how to reach destinations by alternative modes. This is especially true near Santa Fe Depot and in touristy areas.
  • Wide sidewalks are more comfortable for pedestrians to use, and an overhead tree canopy is a welcomed street amenity and beautification detail.
  • Broadway is not a comfortable corridor for cyclists to use, especially with the volume of bus and vehicular traffic. Broadway is, however, one of the few streets downtown that offers through access to the waterfront and an abundance of transit options.

There is always a lot to learn on walk audits, and we appreciate the time and input all of the participants provided.

Thank you to The City of San Diego and SANDAG for providing the funding for this program as a part of #MoveFreeSD.

Tonight - Bike the BLVD Ride on El Cajon Blvd

Have you ridden the new dedicated bike and bus lane on El Cajon Blvd yet? 

Tonight, Friday, December 6th, 2019, the Circulate San Diego Planning team is joining the San Diego County Bike Coalition and the California Office of Traffic Safety for their unique bike ride event on the new Boulevard Bus Way on El Cajon Blvd.

Meet at the NEW Boulevard Court at 6 pm (Alabama St & El Cajon Blvd) at 6 pm. The 6-mile ride starts at 7 pm and ends at the Belching Beaver on 30th Street.

For more event details, visit the San Diego Bicycle Coalition website.

What is the Boulevard Bus Way? The Boulevard Bus Way is a dedicated bus and shared bike lane along El Cajon Blvd. This temporary dedication lane improves traffic and allows transit to compete with vehicle travel time. See MTS website for more information.
