Crosscut Canal Path & Bridge

The City of Scottsdale is currently designing a series of improvements to provide connectivity from the Belleview bike route at 66th Street to the Crosscut Canal.  

The project will include a concrete multi-use path, an accessible ramp to the canal bank, and a bridge crossing to improve access to the existing path on the west side of the canal and the McDowell Road underpass.  Other enhancements will include way finding signage, lighting, and desert adapted landscaping to match the rest of the existing path on the Crosscut Canal to the north. 

The City of Scottsdale received funding from the Federal Transit Authority to construct these improvements. Construction work is anticipated to begin Spring 2017 and be completed Fall 2017.

Preliminary plans were presented to the community in May 2016.
