The short section of separated bike lane in downtown Tucson is about to get a block longer thanks to a grant from Tucson’s REI.

The outdoor retailer donated $5,000, which will help complete an extension of the two-way cycle track on Stone Avenue. Currently the separated lane extends from Toole Avenue to Alameda. The grant will help add a segment from Alameda Street to Pennington Street.

According to a Living Streets Alliance press release the addition of the cycle track will be completed in May 2017.

  1. This is great to hear. Slowly, and piece by piece, our bike and pedestrian infrastructure is improving. 

    I have to assume $5000 isn’t the total project cost. Any idea what that might be? Bike infrastructure isn’t super expensive, but I’d be astonished if the REI grant could cover a block-long project.
