Repair work along a popular path has closed a portion of the The Loop along South Kolb Road north of Interstate 10 for the next few days.

With the shared-use path near the Julian Wash closed, drivers should be prepared for pedestrians and cyclists who may be crossing the high-speed traffic area and use extreme care.

The repair work is expected to be complete no later than Friday evening.

The Loop, developed by Pima County, will be 131 miles when completed and will connect the Rillito, Santa Cruz and Pantano River Parks with the Julian Wash and Harrison greenways.
