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.

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.

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.

Exciting #bikeabq news: the last “notch”/underpass on the North Diversion Channel Trail, under Indian School Rd, is currently under construction. It should be open by Spring 2021.

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.

“A reader remarked that many drivers do not come to full stops at stop lights before they turn right on a red light. This situation occurs frequently on Tramway, and I have had several close calls while biking."

Fortunately, we have been told by NMDOT that the #Tramway repaving/re-striping improvements will include more signage to prevent these types of conflicts.

From motion to action, we've never seen anything move this quickly! Thank you ABQ City Council for making this happen. We agree with Vision Zero Albuquerque on all points.

Our motion from our virtual May meeting was calling on the City of Albuquerque to:
- Look into temporarily restricting vehicle access to certain areas in order to support social distancing, outdoor recreation, & economic development.

Our streets are public spaces. We support people using them to protest injustice and we support people using them as safe ways to practice self care and find community. What #ABQ streets would make good #activestreets? Would you and your neighbors support and help activate something like this in your neighborhood? Share your ideas with us and your city leaders!

From motion to action- thank you City of Albuquerque Planning Department for making it easier for folks to add more outdoor seating. We hope that the next steps is #openstreets so more people can safely walk, roll & bike while keeping distance.

Our motion from our May meeting was calling on the City of Albuquerque to:
- Look into temporarily restricting vehicle access to certain areas in order to support social distancing, outdoor recreation, & economic development.

Thank you City of Albuquerque Planning Department, Mayor Tim Keller, City Councilor Pat Davis, City Councilor Cynthia Borrego and others for waiving the outdoor seating app fee. This should help local #restaurants, assuming the permitting process isn't too challenging. We caution against adding much more seating on our already narrow sidewalks & hope folks are being encouraged to use their parking lots instead.

Also, Nob Hill Main Street, West Downtown, ABQ, Mile-Hi District ABQ, South Valley MainStreet & other New Mexico MainStreet / merchant groups are invited to explore street closures for outdoor dining- so check it out!

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.
