The Mission Bay Rose Creek Bikeway and Pedestrian Bridge

Here are a few pictures of the new Rose Creek Bikeway and Pedestrian Bridge, which opened to the public last week (20 Apr 12). The bridge is 260 ft in length and cost 2.9 million dollars. Once I read that the bridge was open I was eager to see it and make use of it, so I took a trip out to Mission Bay on my Trek hybrid. It is a relatively small bridge, but it makes a big difference for bike riders who ride around the north side of San Diego’s Mission Bay. Before this bridge was available bikers had no choice but to cross the Rose Creek via Grand Avenue, which is several blocks north and which is primarily used by motor vehicles.

This is the east side view of the bridge.

Here is the view from the apex of the bridge, facing west.
