City Projects Cropping Up

If you have been riding, walking, or driving on San Diego streets within the last two weeks, you have probably noticed some additional roadway construction. The results of a $102.7 million bond are coming to fruition across the city as crews get to work on a list of city council-approved projects, including resurfacing 120 miles of streets.

Bike San Diego noticed this morning that the wretched stretch of Maryland Street between Meade and Lincoln has been resurfaced. The lines have not yet been painted, but we can assume the bike lane will reappear there shortly. This is particularly handy for riders traveling between University Heights and Hillcrest, as they now have a smoother and safer ride down Maryland to Lincoln and the Vermont Street pedestrian bridge over Washington Street, rather than negotiating the often-hazardous intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Washington Street.

Noticed any other projects that are having an impact, either positive or negative, on bicycling in the San Diego metro area? Leave a note in the comments, or send us a tip.
