Peters Canyon Bikeway Extension Project

Project Overview

The Peters Canyon Bikeway Project is a proposed Bikeway adjacent to Jamboree Road and on Pioneer Road. The bikeway would stretch approximately 2.7 miles through the cities of Tustin and Orange and close a critical gap in the County’s existing bikeway network by linking to the existing Peters Canyon Trail. The existing Peters Canyon Trail, also known as the Mountains to the Sea Trail, runs in a north-south direction along the San Diego Creek between the Newport Back Bay at its southern terminus and Portola Parkway at its northern terminus.

The Orange County Transportation Authority’s (OCTA) OC Foothills (OC Supervisorial District 3) Bikeways Strategic Plan includes this project as a “Regional Parks Connector.” The Peters Canyon Bikeway Project would serve as an important gap closure and provide for a regional connection between Peters Canyon Regional Park and Irvine Regional Park. The project would also provide ease-of-access to existing and proposed neighborhoods along Jamboree Road and Pioneer Road and to local education centers like Peters Canyon Elementary School and Santiago Canyon College.

The original proposed alignment for the Peters Canyon Bikeway Project suggested a bikeway through Peters Canyon Regional Park, however, based on input provided by residents and other project stakeholders, the alignment through the park was not preferred. Currently, the alternative alignment option will be adjacent to Jamboree Road and on Pioneer Road, outside of Peters Canyon Regional Park.

Based on community input, the current proposed alignment combines Class I and Class II bicycle facilities. The northerly portion of the bikeway is Class I paved parkway along Jamboree Road completely separated from automobile traffic and the southerly portion is Class II bike lane on both sides of Pioneer Road, separated from the traffic lanes by a 3-foot-wide striped buffer which provides a safer bicycling environment for users of all ages and abilities.
