Document Description
This project consists of the acquisition of approximately of 2.3 acres of the Sorento Valley Road property which is contiguous with the 1,700 acre Torrey Pines State Reserve to the west and abuts Interstate-5 to the east. As a portion of the property is located under elevated portions of Interstate-5, the property also connects to contiguous open space habitat owned and managed by the City of San Diego eastwardly up Los Penasquitos Canyon. Wildlife use this connection to move between the State Reserve, Lagoon and adjacent open space to the east. The acquisition of Sorrento Valley Road Knoll also lays the foundation to connect the proposed Sorrento Valley Road Trail to the existing tail system within the State Reserve and on City of San Diego lands. The addition of the subject property into public ownership for preservation and recreation provides a direct trail connection and includes two planned bridges, one for pedestrians and bicyclists. The footbridge will be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
