On May 24, 2016, the project team presented preliminary recommendations at a Pacific Beach Community Planning Group Ad Hoc Subcommittee meeting. Below are the presentation and boards from the meeting, as well as brief explanations of each alternative.


Alternative 1 provides a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the I-5 freeway to Mission Bay Drive. A bicycle connection is then provided to Magnolia tying into Rose Creek Path to get to areas within the community.

Alternative 2 provides a two-way cycle track (bicycle facility) along Garnet Avenue to Mission Bay Drive and then along a traffic calmed Magnolia Avenue. Pedestrians and cyclists then have the opportunity of travelling along Figueroa Blvd to cross Grand Avenue.

Alternative 3 provides an on-street bicycle facility along Garnet Avenue and provides improved connections to the Rose Creek Bike Path from Garnet Avenue and Grand Avenue.

*All three alternatives provide intersection enhancements for pedestrians such as upgraded pedestrian ramps and crossings, pedestrian actuated signals and countdown timers at Mission Bay Drive and Garnet Avenue and a better configuration of the Grand Avenue and Mission Bay Boulevard intersection to improve pedestrian access across this intersection.
