The Coachella Valley has long had a need for a transportation route and recreational pathway that will provide a safer, healthy alternative to Highway 111. CV Link will provide that alternative allowing residents and tourists alike the ability to bike, walk or take a low–speed electric vehicle for activities such as shopping, work, restaurant, golf, tennis and other activities. It will also provide a safer route for kids to go to school and serve as a meeting place for community activities and events.
CV Link will provide significant environmental, health & wellness and economic benefits including:
- Relieving congestion on Highway 111 resulting in improved air quality
- Creating an exciting recreational amenity for the tourism industry and local residents
- Providing a safer avenue for an active and healthy lifestyle helping to combat obesity
- Stimulating the economy with design and construction jobs
