Bosque Trail improvements are on the way. The project consists of rehabilitating the existing trail from Tingley Drive to the South Diversion Channel.
Bernalillo County leveraged 15 percent in capital improvement bond money to obtain 85 percent in federal funding. Total rehabilitation of the 15-year old trail will total approximately $1 million dollars.
Planned improvements will eliminate the numerous bumps and cracks throughout this stretch of the trail. While protecting trees along the Bosque Trail, minor realignment and drainage improvements will also be included.
“Bicyclists, pedestrians and community residents use and enjoy this trail in the South Valley. While many people are aware of the proposed improvements we need to get the word out to as many people as we can,” says Commission Chair Art De La Cruz.
A public meeting is scheduled on Thursday, May 31, at the Mountain View Community Center located at 201 Prosperity Ave SE beginning at 5:30 p.m. Bernalillo County Public Works staff will provide details about the project and the proposed construction schedule. The public meeting will give residents an opportunity to share their comments about the project.
