50-Mile Activity Loop Projects

Updates on the 50-Mile Activity Loop

Project Updates

March 30, 2017: The City started the 50-Mile Activity Loop project with 42.7 miles of existing trails. As of today, we have added an additional 3.3 miles of usable trails to the system and by Nov. 30, 2017 we will add an additional 2.7 miles for a total of 48.7 miles of the 50-Mile Activity Loop.  $3.2 million invested so far.

Progress continues on the City’s 50-Mile Activity Loop as the first of 439 wayfinding signs was installed on March 30, 2017 at the intersection of Pennsylvania Street and Winrock Loop. The signage will provide direction to bikers, walkers, joggers and others, to better enable them to use the multi-use trail system.

Additional Updates

  •  In 2015, the City of Albuquerque completed the first phase of the 50-Mile Activity Loop, which connected Uptown to Zuni Road via on-street facilities (bikeways and sidewalks) and multi-use trails. 
  • The second phase of the project, which is currently underway, includes the creation of Downtown bike lanes expected to be completed in the spring, along with the installation of the loop signage.
  • The third phase of the project, which should begin by the middle of this year, includes a multi-use trail crossing at Coors Boulevard and Eagle Ranch Road.  The project will connect the existing Piedras Marcadas Park Trail to the Paseo del Norte Trail.
