The <a href="/streetssite/Documents/Revised%20-%20Road%20Repurposing%20-%20Existing%20and%20Proposed.pdf">revised proposal</a> includes keeping the two westbound vehicular-travel lanes to correspond with the higher daily traffic volumes and the removal of one eastbound vehicular-travel lane to allow the roadway to be repurposed to include bike lanes. </p><p>These 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 modifications would provide a more effective use of the street by adding another transportation option for area residents. The 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 August 4 meeting. </p><p>These proposed modifications 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">phoenix.gov/streets/OsbornRoad</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;">602-262-6284<a title="Call: 602-262-6284" href="#" style="margin:0px;border:currentcolor;left:0px;top:0px;width:16px;height:16px;right:0px;bottom:0px;overflow:hidden;vertical-align:middle;float:none;display:inline;white-space:nowrap;position:static !important;"></a></span> or email <a href="mailto:OsbornRoad@phoenix.gov">OsbornRoad@phoenix.gov</a>.</p></div>7/5/2018 5:00:00 PMMonica Hernandez 602-350-8853Mark Melnychenko 602-262-6284
