Bicycle and Pedestrians

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

The Mobility Authority is commitment 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 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 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
