    Harrison Greenway mapConstruction will begin the week of July 20 to add 3.2 miles of new asphalt pathway along the Harrison Greenway section of the Loop, located at the south side of Irvington and Harrison Road continuing south to Mesquite Elementary School south of Valencia Road. The Loop is the 100-plus miles of shared-use paths winding through Pima County.

    Work will continue through December. During construction the pathway is not open, so bicyclists need to plan accordingly. Fantasy Island trails will still be open, but some adjustments for safety may be made at the northern trail area. A signalized bike/pedestrian crossing will be installed on Valencia Road as a part of the project. 

    The construction takes place on a recently acquired easement from the Arizona State Land Department, and will be a critical link between the Julian Wash Greenway and the Pantano River Park. 

    Funding comes from several sources, including Department of Transportation Highway User Revenue Funds, a Military Installation Fund Grant, and some remaining 2004 General Obligation bonds for the Harrison Greenway. 

    URS/AECOM is the design engineer, and KE&G is the construction contractor. Please refer to the map of the affected area.
