Bicycle and Pedestrians

We are building facilities for cyclists and pedestrians where none existed before

The Mobility Authority has a strong commitment to constructing multi-modal, pedestrian friendly facilities that enhance quality of life for all who use them. These facilities include Shared Use Paths, sidewalks and cross-street connections. The 183 South Project is no exception. Over $25 million is being invested in building bicycle and pedestrian facilities as part of this project.

We are excited to have the opportunity to bring the following multi-modal connections to the community:

  • A seven mile, 10-foot-wide, continuous Shared Use Path along the northbound non-tolled general purpose lanes for biking, running and walking along US 183 from US 290 to SH 71
  • Nine miles of 6-foot-wide sidewalks
  • 16-miles of 5-foot-wide bike lanes along the northbound and southbound general purpose lanes
  • Bicycle and pedestrian trailheads at the East Communities YMCA and Boggy Creek that will connect with the existing Southern Walnut Creek Hike and Bike Trail
  • A bicycle and pedestrian trailhead at the Colorado River
  • Rehabilitation and conversion of the steel truss bridge over the Colorado River to a bicycle and pedestrian bridge
  • New pedestrian bridges crossing over the US 183 corridor near Manor Road/Springdale Road, 51st Street, and Bolm Road, with two additional pedestrian bridges over Boggy Creek
  • Connections to the Manor Expressway/290 Toll and SH 71 Express Shared Use Paths, as well at the Lance Armstrong Bikeway
