The El Paso Gasline Multi-use Path Project is a half mile path extension of the existing El Paso Gasline Multi-use Path that extends from Price Road to McClintock Drive. This project will extend west from Rural Road into Kiwanis Park. A bike lane along Southshore Drive between McClintock and Rural connects these two projects. It will link major residential areas with Kiwanis Park and the neighborhood parks of Optimist, Gaicki and Scudder. Additionally, the path will connect to Fuller, Fees, Rover, and Aguilar schools. The project will have two neighborhood street crossings at Forest and at College avenues. The project connects many transit routes and the six-mile Western Canal Multi-use Path.

The project will include a paved path, lighting, landscaping, public art and other amenities. The project will meet all ADA requirements and the project is funded almost entirely with $1.3 million in federal transportation grants.

The project continues Tempe's commitment to multi-modal transportation and improving upon what is already the highest percentage of bicycle commuters in the state. The project is both a recreational amenity (linear park) and a transportation corridor.

Construction will begin in summer 2014 if approved by the City Council.
