Phase 2 (88th Street to Table Mesa) Update

Schedule and weather permitting, the Phase 2 bikeway from 88th Street in Louisville/Superior to Table Mesa will open in March. Until then, the bikeway remains closed and people are advised not to use any part of this portion of the bikeway. As the bikeway appears to be complete in many areas, it still remains closed to all pedestrian and bikeway users. Construction crews are being delayed with final completion activities due to the high number of riders attempting to access the closed sections of the bikeway. Your cooperation staying off the bikeway is appreciated as we wrap up construction.
