    Work has begun on a 2.7-mile segment of The Loop along the Julian Wash between Alvernon Way and Kino Parkway.

    The new 16-foot-wide segment will be a car-free, shared-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians between Augie Acuña Los Niños Park and the Tucson Diversion Channel southwest of Kino Sports Complex. Granite Construction is the contractor.

    The project, which is expected to be finished this fall, will complete the Julian Wash Greenway, a shared-use path more than 14 miles long between the Santa Cruz River segment of The Loop and Rita Road.

    The project is funded by the Community Healthcare Benefit Foundation of Pima County, which includes Tucson Medical Center and Carondelet Health Network, and is a community group effort to improve health and fitness outcomes in the region.
