Canal banks around the Valley can get pretty crowded as walkers, joggers and bicyclists are going at different speeds. Some are training, others just enjoy the weather and some needed to get the family dog some exercise.

A couple of stretches of canal banks will be closed for part of the winter, from 56th Street to 32nd Street and from 43rd to 51st Avenues. Jim Duncan, senior analyst of water engineering at Salt River Project, explained why the banks will be closed.
