Qualcomm Stadium Bike Paths and Rain Checks

Rocky Bicycle Path

Rocky Bicycle Path

Long time readers know that part of my lovely commute takes me across Qualcomm Bicycle path which is really a strip of land that the stadium allows for bicycles (and mostly pedestrians) to travel through.

I love the path for many reasons, and one of them is that I become far more relaxed once I get to the parking lot because there’s usually less traffic, and it’s much quieter.

However, one of the downsides is that it becomes a small pond every time that it rains.

Thankfully, it does not rain too often, but when it does, it floods.

Readers not from San Diego probably know that things do not have to be this way.

There are such notions as “drainage”.

But the problem extends beyond a few feet of water in a parking lot.

The other problem is run off in the form of silt and stones.

Previously, I have blogged about the efforts done to dredge the nearby creek.

However, there are more obvious things that can be done.

One of them would be to build a wall which is large enough to contain most of the silt and stones.

Additionally, many of the silt and stones can be removed.

This same problem is evident along Fairmont as I had previously talked about. I feel that there’s a similar solution possible for this problem.
