San Diego will partially close some streets to encourage safe walking, cycling

Stretches of four streets in San Diego will be closed to vehicle traffic beginning Thursday to increase walking and cycling space, allowing residents to get outside while maintaining social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The initial set of streets in the “Slow Streets” pilot program are Diamond Street from Mission Boulevard to Olney Street, Adams Avenue over Interstate 805 and Howard Avenue from Park Boulevard to 33rd Street along with a street in District 4 which has not been finalized, Mayor Kevin Faulconer said.

Temporary barriers and signage will mark the closures. Faulconer said he will work with the City Council to identify additional streets for inclusion into the program.
