Carmel Valley Planning Board hears plans for El Camino Real and SR-56 bike path connector

By Kristina Houck

Cyclists may eventually have an easier way to access the bike path off state Route 56 from El Camino Real.

Dean Marsden from the city of San Diego Public Works Department presented plans for a bike path connector during the Carmel Valley Planning Board meeting April 24.

The project would connect the existing bike lane on El Camino Real to the bike path along SR-56. Currently, there is a dirt trail in the proposed project space.

Funded by Carmel Valley Facilities Benefit Assessment fees, construction is estimated to cost $326,000 and would include the removal of existing sidewalk to install a new concrete driveway as well as the installation of a bike path access link. Non-invasive drought-tolerant plants would also be planted along the newly graded slopes and the remains of the existing dirt path.

“This should improve the whole area,” Marsden said. “Now you’ve got this eroded dirt bare trail. We’ll have this bike path with some slopes that will be revegetated.”

Marsden said project staff hopes to obtain a site development permit in August. After the final design is completed and a construction contract is awarded, construction should begin in September 2015 and be completed by January 2016, he said.

He encouraged community members with questions, comments or concerns about the project to contact Helene Deisher, the project manager, at 619-446-5223.
