50-Mile Activity Loop 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.
The City hosted a public information meeting on August 20 to provide a project overview and answer questions about this project.
- Design for Phase One of the 50-Mile Activity Loop is complete.
- Construction to begin on this first section by early spring for people to enjoy before the end of the year.
