New Lines, Let's Hope the Carriages Don't Return


New lines painted on the new Arizona Canal Path

Black and white dots marked the locations for the lines

The message: stay on your side. We'll see how that works.

  1. Is that cement? Is it common to use cement for paths in AZ?

    1. Yes, it is cement. I prefer riding on smooth freshly applied asphalt with no expansion joints. But I'm pretty sure this is somehow an economic and maintenance choice dictated by the environment here--blazing hot summers, no frost or ice in the winters. The paving will be very welcome when it rains, though, because this section of canal bank in particular used to become a muddy mess after a storm. If I get the chance, I will ask someone in the know about the cement, and also if there is still some art planned to be installed along here.

    1. You are correct. Still love me some fresh asphalt in the morning, though.
