Old Highway 101 Bike Path Closures Scheduled

SAN DIEGO – The bike path along Old Highway 101 will be closed from Las Pulgas Road to the fence line at the southern boundary of San Onofre State Beach during daylight hours Monday through Wednesday and again Tuesday, Aug. 14 through Thursday, Aug. 16 to allow for military operations in the area.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will open the shoulders along I-5 from Las Pulgas Road to Basilone Road to bicycles in order to provide an alternate route for bicyclists during the closures.  Caltrans will place detour signs and signs advising bicyclists that they must exit at all off-ramps, weigh stations and vista points along the route to avoid the possibility of conflict with vehicle traffic.  Once the bike path has reopened, the signs allowing bicycles along this stretch of freeway will be removed.

Caltrans reminds motorists to drive alertly and to Share the Road.
