TUCSON, Ariz. — A two-mile extension was recently added to Tucson's The Loop.

The shared pathway that stretches across Pima County was extended from Rita Road to Houghton Road, providing a connection to the pathways along the east side of Houghton.

This new addition is only one part of a major project to extend The Loop to the Pima County Fairgrounds.

According to county administrator Chuck Huckleberry, that project is two-three years out.

The Loop became a "real loop" in January 2018. It connects parks, trail heads, schools, bike routes and more.
