Improvements to be made to oldest portion of The Loop

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Improvements to the Loop may temporarily close portions of the recreational path on the northwest side. 

Pima County recently announced improvements to the Loop, just north of the Rillito River from La Cholla to Campbell.  This is the oldest and most used portion of the path. 

Path improvements will include widening and resurfacing the existing asphalt path, path alignments, in addition to handrail modifications, path restriping, shoulder grading and vegetation maintenance/augmentation.  All of these improvements are expected to take at least two months to complete, Loop users may encounter occasional complete path closures in construction areas. 

Loop riders and walkers should use caution when approaching the area and adhere to detour and construction signs.

When the Loop is completed it will cover a total of 131 miles and connect the Rillito, Santa Cruz and Pantano River Parks with the Julian Wash and Harrison Greenways.
