A 1.5-mile section of the Santa Fe Rail Trail will be closed until November while crews make surface and drainage improvements. The portion o f trail that will be closed is between Avenida Eldorado and Spur Ranch Road
The closure is part of the fourth phase of trail improvements within the right of way of the Santa Fe Southern Railroad.
Phase 4 of the project will cost ~$391,010.00 and is funded from General Obligation Bond funds and a Federal Highway Administration grant
The Santa Fe MPO seeks to make bicycling a safer and more convenient form of everyday transportation for citizens and visitors. Santa Fe is an ideal bicycling environment due to its compact size, moderate terrain, and pleasant weather. A bicycle offers an alternative travel choice for those concerned about the environment, and requires relatively little infrastructure. In addition, bicycles can have travel times comparable with automobiles for short distances and are less expensive to own and operate than automobiles.
The Santa Fe Bikeways and Trails Map was created through public input to show the perceived suitability of on-street facilities for bicycling. The conditions at specific locations are subjective, always changing, and may vary from what is shown on the map. Please use the map as a community-based guidance to help you select a bicycling route that meets your needs and skill level. Always use caution to evaluate the current roadway conditions.
Printed copies of the Map are available at the MPO Offices, City Hall (City Managers Office), Main, La Farge & Southside Library’s, All Area Bike Shops, Santa Fe Convention & Visiors Bureau, New Mexico State Convention and Visitors Bureau, Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce. The 2018 Bikeways and Trails Map can be viewed and downloaded on this page. Direct links: Bikeways Map, Back Side, Bikeways Regional.
After mapping, projects can be prioritized for funding and implementation. The highest priority projects will be accessible for review with member governments so they can be included into the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). . Based on concentrations of high priority projects, high priority pedestrian improvement zones can be designated to complete improvements by geographic area.
