The program is also aimed at increasing Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility on roadways to improve safety and connectivity for all roadway users.<br> <br>“As we continue to improve our streets, we are working hard to become a more walkable, connected and accessible city—for everyone,” Mayor Greg Stanton said. “The community’s input will be a key component to improve safety for Phoenix residents traveling to and from school, work and other activities.”<br> <br>“The Mobility Improvements Program will enhance the quality of life and health of all residents through increased transportation connectivity,” said Phoenix Vice Mayor Thelda Williams, Chair of the Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee. “It is our goal to provide those residents who walk or bike to their destinations a safe, seamless, and connected experience. I encourage residents to participate in the public input process and help improve the mobility of your neighborhoods.”  <br> <br>Mobility projects that result from this program will focus on all types of streets (arterial, collector and neighborhood), with a particular emphasis on providing safe and convenient ways for people to walk and bike to and from important destinations such as schools, markets, parks, employment and entertainment centers and public transit.  <br> <br>The program includes 11 neighborhood mobility improvement studies. Four out of the 11 studies are now underway. To see the list of the neighborhood mobility improvement studies, visit the T2050 Mobility Improvements Program webpage at <a href="/t2050/mobility-improvements-program">Phoenix.Gov/T2050/Mobility-Improvements-Program</a>.<br> <br>As part of the public input process for this program, public meetings will be held in each neighborhood mobility study area and public input surveys also will be made available. Details about public input opportunities are listed in the webpage for each neighborhood mobility study. <br> <br>For questions and comments about the Mobility Improvements Program, please contact Brian Fellows, Mobility Planner at <span class="baec5a81-e4d6-4674-97f3-e9220f0136c1" style="white-space:nowrap;">602-534-2163<a title="Call: 602-534-2163" 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:Brian.Fellows@phoenix.gov">Brian.Fellows@phoenix.gov</a>. </p></div>5/23/2018 7:00:00 AMMonica Hernandez 602-350-8853Brian Fellows 602-534-2163
