    Construction is beginning that will connect The Loop from the Cañada del Oro Wash at Thornydale Road to the Santa Cruz River in early 2015.

    The LoopThe Pima County Regional Flood Control District is overseeing the construction of the ¾-mile segment along the south bank of the Cañada del Oro (CDO). On the west side of Interstate 10, the path along the CDO will connect with the shared-use path along the frontage road south of Ted Walker Park and Mike Jacob Sports Park.

    Loop users in the area of Thornydale Road and the CDO Wash should exercise caution as there may be intermittent restrictions in the area due to construction activities.

    The project is anticipated to be completed within eight months and open to the public in early 2015.

    The path along the I-10 frontage road is part of the Santa Cruz River segment of The Loop, which is nearly 18 miles long between El Rio Park in Marana and 29th Street or Silverlake Road.

    The completed path along the south bank of the CDO will be nearly four miles long between the I-10 frontage road and La Cholla Boulevard.

    The path from La Cholla to La Cañada Drive is currently scheduled to start construction in late 2014 and be completed by mid- to late 2015. That segment will complete the CDO segment of The Loop, a 10.8-mile path between the I-10 frontage road on the west and Tangerine Road in Oro Valley on the east.
