Bear Valley Parkway North Widening Project
Project Description & Purpose
Construction of Bear Valley Parkway North Widening Project is complete. The project widened the current two-lane road to a four-lane from San Pasqual Valley Road (SR-78) to just north of Boyle Avenue, and connect to the existing four-lane road within the City of Escondido to the north. Bike lanes, sidewalks, landscaped medians and parkways, drainage improvements, waterline upgrades, and new traffic signals at realigned intersections were also installed.
