A popular bike path in Ocean Beach has been closed until next week for a natural gas pipeline test, according to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E).
The path on the south side of the San Diego River to the west of Pacific Highway all the way to Mission Bay Drive was closed off Wednesday, May 18th.
This comes just ahead of Bike to Work Day, which will be celebrated nationally Friday.
Any bikers hoping to take that route will now need to detour to the route north of the river on the Pacific Highway and Mission Bay Drive.
According to SDG&E, the construction will continue until May 27th. The bike path will reopen for Memorial Day weekend.
