Lucy Gent Foma, transportation scholar for Bandelier National Monument, presented a concept for a 30-mile regional multiuse path connecting Bandelier, Los Alamos, White Rock and the Santa Fe National Forest to the Transportation Board on Thursday.
The goal is to “provide a safe recreational area and multimodal path that connects White Rock, Los Alamos, Bandelier and Santa Fe National Forest for diverse groups, including young workers, ADA recipients and visitors.”
The initial study is funded by a grant from the National Park Foundation’s Transportation Scholars program.
Bandelier Superintendent Jason Lott has spearheaded the project to connect Bandelier to gateway communities via alternative transportation and “contribute to the vision of making Los Alamos a family recreation destination.” The concept has been discussed for at least two decades, but has never been put into play.
Gent Foma spoke about the need for such a trail.
“The area I’m talking about is already used by many cyclists…The unfortunate part about this is that Route 4 lacks shoulders, and that combined with the curvy nature of this road makes it a pretty dangerous route for both cyclists and for drivers,” Gent Foma said.
