50-Mile Activity Loop Projects

Current projects

The 50-Mile Activity Loop is the City of Albuquerque's proposed 50-mile multi-use trail and bikeway facility, which fills the gaps in our existing trails and bikeways facilities. When complete, it will create a 50-mile bicycling, running and walking loop around the city.

First Project: Nob Hill to Uptown Segment

This first phase of construction connects Uptown to Nob Hill via multi-use trail construction and other improvements. These improvements include traffic signal upgrades, additional signage and striping, and intersection improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists at Pennsylvania and Winrock Loop, Haines and San Pedro, and Lomas and Alvarado.

The design work was funded by Capital Improvement Program funds. Funding for construction comes from ABQ the Plan funds.
