Reducing travel lanes allows the roadway to be repurposed to include design elements such as a center-turn lane and buffered bike lanes. Such design elements would help create a safer environment for all users of the roadway, add greater connectivity to area activity centers and improve bicycle lane connectivity.  The new proposed bike lanes connect to existing bike lanes on Osborn Road east of 19<sup>th</sup> Avenue and existing bike lanes on 15<sup>th</sup> Avenue. </p><p>The proposed striping plans and other supporting information for this project will be made available at the meeting.  The information presented at this meeting also will be made available on the <a href="/streets/osbornroad"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Osborn Road project webpage</span></a> following the meeting.  </p><p>This proposed modifications for this project are programmed to be completed as part of a planned pavement overlay project that will take place in fall 2018 or spring 2019. </p><p>For more information about this project, visit the project webpage at <a href="/streets/osbornroad"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">phoenix.gov/streets/OsbornRoad</span></a>. </p><p> If you have questions or comments, please contact Mark Melnychenko, Street Transportation Department, deputy director at <span class="baec5a81-e4d6-4674-97f3-e9220f0136c1" style="white-space:nowrap;">602-534-0592 </span>or email <a href="mailto:OsbornRoad@phoenix.gov"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">OsbornRoad@phoenix.gov</span></a>.</p></div>4/19/2018 7:00:00 AMMark Melnychenko602-534-0592
