    A segment of The Loop west of Interstate 10 and between El Camino del Cerro and Sunset Road will be closed starting Tuesday, Nov. 5, for repairs.

    The closed north-south segment is west of some businesses on Casa Grande Highway, south of Diamond Street. The work is expected to take 7-8 working days.

    Cyclists headed south from Sunset Road at the closed segment can instead proceed with caution:
    • on the paved shoulder along the southbound frontage road to El Camino del Cerro
    • then on the westbound bike lane along Camino del Cerro to Christopher Columbus Park entrance
    • to the shared use path along the west side of the Santa Cruz River.

    Cyclists headed north from El Camino del Cerro at the closed segment can proceed with caution:
    • eastbound on the bike lane on the south side of El Camino del Cerro
    • through the southbound frontage road intersection and under I-10  (there are no bike facilities under I-10)
    • turn left at Ruthrauff Road and the northbound frontage road intersection and proceed on the paved shoulder along the frontage road to Sunset Road
    • then under I-10 and across the southbound frontage road to reconnect with The Loop

    Pima County is developing The Loop around metro Tucson with links to Marana, Oro Valley, and South Tucson for residents and visitors on foot, bikes, skates, and horses.

    When completed, The Loop will total 131 miles and connect the Rillito, Santa Cruz, and Pantano River Parks with the Julian Wash and Harrison Greenways. The Loop connects to parks, trails, bus and bike routes, workplaces, schools, libraries, restaurants, hotels and motels, shopping areas, and sports and entertainment venues.
