The bike and pedestrian path linking the Foothills and Center Green campuses officially opened February 23, with UCAR president Rick Anthes leading the way during a ribbon-cutting ceremony (top). He was followed by a number of staffers, including F&A's Michelle Travis on a unicycle and, just behind her, SCD's Wes Wildcat. The half-mile path travels under Foothills Parkway along the railroad tracks to connect the intersection of Mitchell Lane and 47th Street with the north end of Center Green Drive. "We anticipate that travel between Center Green and 47th Street will be much safer and more convenient," says Marion Hammond, facilities project manager.
