Caltrans plans to install barrier along 56 bike path

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A News 8 story is leading to some big changes along the 56 bike path.

Last week News 8 viewer Dan Valentine sent the station a picture of a car that went off the freeway, through the fence, and onto the bike path. In this incident, no one was hurt.

But a cyclist was killed in a previous crash along that same path, a section of which is separated from the freeway by just a chain link fence.

After the News 8 report, Caltrans now says it will install a concrete barrier along any section of the freeway that's less than 30 feet from the riders.
