Way back in November, 2010 were the first hints that an underpass for cyclists and pedestrians would be put in where 7th Avenue crosses the Arizona Canal. The site is in a prime spot for cyclists, including me, so as time passed and the project slowly progressed, I ended up with a few blog posts about it.
The mysterious monolith that was the subject of an earlier post is totally gone now, and must have been some sort of surface texture practice fixture. It looks like the practice paid off, because they put up some interesting and relevant surface treatments on the walls of the underpass.

There's some other interesting details that I will just leave for you to go and ride down here and check out for yourself. Great work, canal tunnel underpass boffins! Thank you for this improvement to the ACDC path. Cyclists and pedestrians appreciate improvements like this, which present a small handful of details to gaze upon at the scale of a lone human moving at a walking pace.
