|New multi-use path tunnel under construction along the Indian Bend Wash in Scottsdale|
Indian Bend Wash, a green belt the runs through Scottsdale and serves as a flood control diversion channel, has had a multi-use path along at least sections of it for at least twenty-five years, and Scottsdale has made constant improvements and additions to it. Up until this project, though, you had to cross Hayden and go through Chaparral Park, because the path along the west side of Hayden Road stopped, crossed to the park, then crossed back at the north end of the park complex. I don't know the historic or practical reasons for it, but logically, I always looked at that section and thought that they would eventually put a path here because it would make sense to do so. And now they have (or at least, will have, once the tunnel opens).

Thanks, City of Scottsdale + residents + constructors for this terrific and logical path. I will express my gratitude by using it regularly. Oh yeah--have a fabulous Friday you slightly out there bicycling fiends. Get up. Go ride.
