Defining the 15-minute city

The “15-minute city” may be defined as an ideal geography where most human needs and many desires are located within a travel distance of 15 minutes. Here’s what that means.

02/05/2021

ATTENTION CYCLISTS AND PEDESTRIANS: Due to a valve rehabilitation project, we have had to close a portion of the North Diversion Channel Trail until March 8. Detour signs are posted and diverts trail users to Jefferson Street south to Montgomery. Washington Street can then be used to join up with the Hahn Arroyo which will later connect to the North Diversion Channel Trail.

It is important to us to work as safely as possible for the crews and the community. We are advising the community to avoid this area if at all possible. If you do choose to travel this route, please use caution when following the detour and obey all construction signage, slow down your speed, and allow for extra time to reach your destination.

Cities can’t build their way out of congestion. Creating more space for cars only attracts more cars.

The one proven way to reduce traffic is to take space away from cars, and hand it to more efficient modes like bikes and trains.

Construction is done on the Alameda Drain Trail along 2nd Street from Montaño north to Paseo del Norte, thanks to Bernalillo County NM. We especially like these raised intersection crossings.

City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation will connect to this trail by constructing a segment between just north of Menaul and Montaño. This will connect to the existing Matthew Trail. Design of the trail is more or less complete but a construction timeline has not been announced yet.

Crews build underpass for popular ABQ bike trail

The last underpass along the North Diversion Channel Trail is currently under construction. Once it is complete, you will be able to ride from UNM Hospital to Balloon Fiesta Park without crossing a single major street!

We are advocating for the trail, which is managed by the City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation department, to one day continue north past Balloon Fiesta Park to Tramway.

The NDC Trail will soon have a bicyclists' notch at Indian School.

NMDOT

Tramway is used by many cyclists and we know that many bike users don't feel comfortable using the multi-use path because of the bad visibility at intersections. We appreciate NMDOT dedicating more space to cyclists who are riding on the road.

Have you seen the new road striping? What do you think about it?

Cyclists are ecstatic! Hwy 556 (Tramway) is getting a new paint job from Encantado Road NE to Tramway Lane NE. District Three Assistant Traffic Engineer Margaret Haynes takes us on a tour of the striping and why it’s a benefit not only to cyclists but to pedestrians and to motorists as well.

Any recommendations for best resources to locate a pair of keys that were lost on the Riverside Trail between the Hispanic Cultural Center and the Bike Rest Stop on Rio Bravo?
These stats highlight a clear pattern of deadly harm: drivers hitting people, because of how they’re driving, is 90 per cent of the problem on our roads.
Noticed this morning on my ride that the new curb for the ART bus stop at Washington and Central protrudes into the intersection by approximately two feet beyond the curb line (see photo). If you are in the bike line southbound on Washington it forces you into traffic or you can potentially hit it.
Please have the GABAC NW representative contact me.
Very disappointed in the new downtown street striping. For example, S/B 5th by the library is unsafe. Who wants to ride in the gutter through debris, between parked cars and the curb? How is one supposed to make a left turn onto Copper, from the curb? "Buffered lanes" may work in real cities with traffic gridlock but this is just ridiculous. Seems to be somebody's solution to a non-existent problem.
