Silver Avenue Bike Detours

Bike detours are in place for Silver Ave between Hermosa & Buena Vista. Bicycles will be instructed to use Lead and Coal instead. This is due to construction for improvement to the Silver Bike Blvd.  See the image below for detour details.

You can read about the Silver Ave Bicycle Blvd project and see the updated drawings for the section from Yale to Carlisle on the City of Albuquerque project webpage.  There will be a variety of changes to improve the Bicycle Blvd aspects, pedestrian use, and parking.
