TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County workers have started construction on the latest segment of "The Loop" on Tucson's south side.

They're improving a 2.7 mile portion of the path along Julian Wash, between Alvernon Way and Kino Parkway.

The entire project should be complete by fall of 2014. It will include 14 miles of the shared path between The Santa Cruz River and Rita Road.

The walkway, which is strictly for bicycles and pedestrians, will be about 16 feet wide by the time crews finish construction. It currently stretches between Augie Acuña Los Niños Park and the Tucson Diversion Channel southwest of Kino Sports Complex.

This construction is funded by the Community Healthcare Benefit Foundation of Pima County.
