Beginning this week, Pima County will be undertaking a river park improvement project on the north bank of the Rillito River from La Cholla Boulevard to Campbell Avenue. This 4.5 mile section of river park is the oldest and most highly used section of The Loop.

This improvement project will include widening and resurfacing of the existing asphalt path, geometric improvements to the path alignment, handrail modifications, path restriping, shoulder grading and vegetation maintenance/augmentation.

During this two-month improvement project, path users can expect to encounter occasional complete path closures in areas with active construction activities. This will be a very dynamic and fast-moving construction project so closure locations along the river park may vary throughout the course of each day.

Path users should exercise caution along this segment of The Loop and adhere to any advisory, detour or construction signing. Your patience during this project is very much appreciated.

Pima County has been 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.
