Use caution on Rillito and Santa Cruz bike and pedestrian pathsby Pima County News on Sep. 13, 2011, under Parks & Recreation, Pima County, Regional Flood Control District
The Pima County Regional Flood Control District encourages users of the bike and pedestrian paths along the Rillito and Santa Cruz rivers to proceed with extreme caution during this storm and construction period.
The Interstate 10 and Union Pacific underpass that connects the Rillito and Santa Cruz river paths is expected to be closed at least until Sept. 17 while debris deposited by storm flooding is cleaned up and paving delayed by the flooding can be completed.
Recent storms have also washed out other areas along the Rillito Linear Park paths, and cleanup efforts are under way.
Work is also proceeding on the Santa Cruz path as it approaches the Rillito. The Flood Control District will be striping the paths and erecting signage in the coming weeks.
The Pima County Regional Flood Control District reminds all path users to obey all detours and signs.
