Bicycle and Pedestrians

ALERT: Walnut Creek Trail at US 183 Temporarily Closing. Click here to read more.


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

The Mobility Authority is committed to constructing multimodal, pedestrian-friendly facilities that enhance quality of life for all who use them. More than $25 million is being invested into shared use paths, sidewalks and cross-street connections as part of this project.

We are excited to bring the following multimodal connections to the community:

  • A 10-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
  • Seven miles of six-foot-wide sidewalks
  • 16-miles of five-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 290 Toll and 71 Toll Lane shared use paths, as well at the Lance Armstrong Bikeway
