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.
Phase 1: The City of Albuquerque completed the first phase of the 50-Mile Activity Loop project. The loop, which is part of ABQ the Plan, connects Uptown to Zuni Road via of on-street facilities (bikeways and sidewalks) and multi-use trails. The project also features shared lane bicycle markings (sharrows), the city’s first HAWK Signal and many other improvements. Project completed: September 2015. Cost $1.16M. The Zuni Road on-street portion has also been completed.
Phase 2 includes the Downtown Bike Lanes and the Overall Signing Plan for the 50 Mile Activity Loop. These projects are expected to be completed in the Spring of 2017 at a cost of $815K.
Phase 3 of the Loop is Segment 8 – the Design of Multi-Use Trail crossing at Coors Blvd and Eagle Ranch. The project will connect the existing Piedras Marcadas Park Trail to the Paseo del Norte Trail. The City has received federal funds and anticipates completion by 2018. Cost estimate: $1.14M
