Closures Scheduled for Bike Path Through Camp Pendleton
SAN DIEGO – The Old Highway 101 bike path will be closed from Las Pulgas Road to the fence line at the southern boundary of San Onofre State Beach during daylight hours beginning Monday. The closure is scheduled to take place daily through Friday while military operations are conducted in the area.
The detour will be to use the right shoulders along Interstate 5 (I-5) between Las Pulgas and Basilone roads. Caltrans will place signs advising that cyclists must exit at all off-ramps to avoid the possibility of conflict with vehicles. Mandatory exits include the weigh stations along northbound and southbound I-5 as well as the vista point in the southbound direction.
Caltrans reminds motorists to avoid distractions while driving, to watch for cyclists and to share the road.
