Completion Of Coastal Rail Trail Segment In Oceanside Cause For Celebration

Bicyclists, business owners, community members and dignitaries are set Monday to celebrate the completion of a $2.45 million segment of the Coastal Rail Trail in Oceanside.

The 2,000-foot segment, which is physically separate from vehicle traffic, is part of a 44-mile stretch that will allow for safe bike trips between Oceanside and San Diego, according to the San Diego Association of Governments.

The new portion of the trail will connect to an existing bike path on Wisconsin Avenue that leads to the Oceanside Transit Center.

According to SANDAG, the city of Oceanside is planning to install a bike parking station at the transit hub.

Construction work on the segment included the installation of lighting, landscaping improvements and construction of a rock stream to help with drainage.
