Change is coming to Fantasy Island (again)!
If you ride FI, you have definitely noticed that construction of the Saguaro Trails subdivision. SDMB has been working with Mattamy homes for several years to mitigate the impact of construction and keep as many of the trails open as possible. Next up is Tucson Water's SHARP (South Houghton Area Recharge Project), which will impact the northern end of the Bunny Loop. GO HERE FOR A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE SHARP PROJECT
Tucson Water and Borderlands Construction have already started work in the area, and they expect to close off the designated part of the Bunny Loop (see the map below) as early as 2/25/19. We hope to have a marked reroute in place which is also on the map. Please respect all closures and reroutes and stay out of the construction area. We don't know exactly how long construction will take, but it will be several months at minimum. The good news is that when it's done, there will be riparian area in Fantasy Island with amenities like benches and ramadas! The Bunny Loop will pass through the SHARP park and around the recharge basins, and the reroute will remain in place for a high-speed bypass.
