Cross of the Martyrs Walkway Work Begins July 18

July 12, 2011 –  Contractor Clemens and Associates, Inc. will begin repairing and refurbishing the Cross of the Martyrs Walkway, located at 617 Paseo de Peralta, on July 18, 2011 and is expected to complete the work the week of August 15, 2011, weather permitting. The work to be done includes replacing broken flagstones and bricks, removing graffiti, trimming weeds, and other routine maintenance.

The walkway, initially dedicated in 1920, was reconstructed in the mid 1980’s and commemorates the death of 21 Franciscan friars and numerous Spanish colonists during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680.

The walkway will remain open to the public. However, the contractor will limit or close access to the walkway from time to time if work being performed presents a safety hazard.
