Old Highway 101 Bike Path Closures Scheduled Monday Through Friday

SAN DIEGO –The bike path along Old Highway 101 through Camp Pendleton will be closed during daylight hours this Monday through Friday while military personnel conduct operations in the area. The path will be closed from Las Pulgas Road to the fence line at the southern boundary of San Onofre State Beach.

Caltrans will open the freeway shoulders along I-5 to bicycles between Las Pulgas and Basilone roads as a detour.  When riding along freeway shoulders, bicycles must exit at all off-ramps including weigh stations and vista points to avoid the possibility of conflict with vehicles. 

Signs will be placed advising bicyclists of the detour and of where they must exit and reenter while traveling along the freeway shoulders.

Motorists are asked to be alert for bicycles traveling near vehicle traffic and are reminded to share the road.
