Ribbon cutting set for 24 Road path

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for Aug. 29 to commemorate the completion of a new path along 24 Road in Grand Junction.

The detached concrete path runs alongside 24 Road from Patterson Road north to Canyon View Park and includes lighting and a pedestrian bridge.

The ribbon cutting ceremony is set for 10 a.m. at the shelter near the handball court at Canyon View Park.

The project was designed to provide more access for pedestrians and bicyclists traveling between Mesa Mall and Canyon View Park. A planned extension south of Mesa Mall will connect to the Riverfront Trail.

The last phase of the project was partially funded by a multi-modal options fund grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation through the Mesa County Regional Transportation Planning Office.
