Bernalillo County unveils improvements along Second Street

A stretch of road in the South Valley is now more bike and pedestrian friendly. 

Bernalillo County held a ribbon cutting Tuesday for improvements along Second Street, which will include new sidewalks and roadway. The project also created a multi-use trail running from Mountain View Elementary School to the Valle De Oro Wildlife Refuge. 

“We hope that folks in this community see this as a fun and safe way to get to your national wildlife refuge,” Amy Lueders, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, said. 

Community members and students joined county leaders for a bike ride to break in the new route Tuesday afternoon. $8.5 million for the project came from the Federal Land Access Program.
