(excerpt from e-mail, City of El Paso)

The draft bicycle network currently designates a bike lane on John Cunningham from Chuck Heinrich Park the El Paso Electric right-of-way east of Martin Luther King. Please see the screen shot below.

We are currently working with ALTA Planning and the community to develop this plan and anticipate adoption in Summer 2016.  Additionally, John Cunningham is scheduled for resurfacing from Martin Luther King to its terminus in FY 2017 through the adopted Capital Improvement Plan.
