    A temporary route now connects the shared-use paths along the Santa Cruz River and the Julian Wash.

    The route begins at the southern end of the shared-use path on the east bank of the Santa Cruz River.

    Starting at the underpass at Silverlake Road, the path takes Loop users up on the top of the bank and then to Santa Cruz Lane. Walk or bike through a gate which crosses Santa Cruz Lane.

    Share the road heading south and turning east onto 36th Street. At the end of 36th Street, an off-street pathway starts and runs south in Arizona Department of Transportation right of way until reaching the Julian Wash. Here, the pathway turns east to connect to The Loop.

    Construction is expected to begin in September 2013 on Phase 1 of the Paseo de las Iglesias project, erosion control and ecosystem restoration improvements along the Santa Cruz River between Silverlake Road and Ajo Way. The project includes paved and decomposed granite pathways that will connect the shared-use paths along the Santa Cruz River and the Julian Wash and replace the temporary route.
