Canyon Rim Trail Phase 3 (Design Phase)

Extension of the Canyon Rim Trail from Knecht Street to the 20th Street Extension.

The Canyon Rim Trail is a 10’ wide multi-use asphalt trail that begins near Camino Entrada and runs along Los Alamos Canyon to the west. Currently it ends at Knecht Street with an on-street connection. The project would extend this trail to the 20th Street Extension where it will meet up with an already constructed 10’ wide concrete trail connection to the Trinity Drive/20th Street intersection. This trail extension is part of the “High Priority Corridor” discussed within the 2017 Bicycle Transportation Plan approved by County Council.

Current Status: Preliminary Design and easement/parcel acquisition.

Urban Trail

Urban Trail 

In mid-2018, NMDOT announced a call for projects under two distinct federal programs, the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program.  Subsequently in late 2018, county staff submitted funding applications along with council adopted resolutions of support requesting TAP and CMAQ funds for the Urban Trail Phase I and Phase II projects, respectively. 

The Phase I Project proposes a multi-use path that begins north of Trinity Drive at 20th Street and continues north to Spruce Street.  This starting point provides a connection to the Canyon Rim Trail system, a portion of which was constructed in 2017 with the 20th Street Extension Project south of Trinity Dr., with the last remaining segment currently under design.  A future traffic signal at the Trinity Dr./20th Street intersection contemplated with the development of 20th Street properties will facilitate trail crossing at Trinity Drive.  Phase I will follow 20th Street along the west side, crossing Central Ave. and along existing pathways through the east side Fuller Lodge lawn and 19th Street, then meandering along neighborhood streets to Spruce Street. 

The Urban Trail Phase II project proposes a multi-use path that begins at Spruce Street where Phase I concludes.  From Spruce Street the proposed trail is an off-street multi-use trail traveling north and then south-west through a forested undeveloped landscape surrounding the Canyon Road tennis courts and eventually linking the Nature Center and Aquatic Center along the north side of Canyon Road.  The trail will connect to recreational centers, recreational trails, and bike lanes on Canyon Road that continues to and along Diamond Drive. 

The entire Urban Trail alignment is part of the High Priority Corridor shown in Bicycle Transportation Plan adopted by Council on June 27, 2017.  With the upcoming completion of the Canyon Rim Trail, including the underpass beneath NM 502 at Entrada Drive funded through a successful TAP application in 2016, and the pending installation of crossing improvements proposed with NMDOT’s NM 502 Reconstruction Project, these projects will provide a non-vehicular thoroughfare to the downtown business district.  Additionally, the project will help connect businesses, tourism, retail, schools, parks, recreation, and residences as envisioned in the Bicycle Transportation Plan.  Completion of these projects will also increase the County’s chances to improve from a bronze to a higher level bicycle friendly community by the League of American Bicyclists. 

In mid-2019, the county was pleasantly informed that both Urban Trail projects were awarded federal funds as follows:

  • FY 2021/22:  $700,000 through TAP for the Urban Trail Phase I Project
  • FY 2020/22:  $3,605,000 through the CMAQ Program for the Urban Trail Phase II Project
  • Both aforementioned federal grants requires a 14.56% local match

DP Road Infrastructure

DP Road Infrastructure

Infrastructure for the A-16 A Site needs to be installed first on DP Road as part of the project (funding for the water,  gas, sewer lines and electric lines is a separate economic development project).

View the map of the proposed infrastructure on DP Road that will serve A-8 A, A-8 B, and A-9 and will terminate at A-16.
