|Two Pedestrian Scrambles Installed in Downtown Phoenix -Virtual Report||https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phxtv/1607||PHXTV||11/4/2020 10:30:00 PM||https://youtu.be/OLPtSIHFPbw||Two Pedestrian Scrambles Installed in Downtown Phoenix -Virtual Report||<div class="ExternalClass729344E68A374D4888A0A56BE2E28813"><html>
<p><span style="font-family:roboto, noto, sans-serif;font-size:15px;white-space:pre-wrap;">People who live, work or play in downtown Phoenix no longer have to look to Tokyo or New York City to learn what a pedestrian scramble is. A pedestrian scramble is an intersection that allows pedestrians to cross in any direction. Downtown Phoenix is now home to two pedestrian scrambles, complete with all-way crosswalks and a traffic signal phase that temporarily stops all vehicular traffic, allowing pedestrians to cross the street in any direction, including diagonally.
“As the fifth largest and fastest growing city in the nation, the installation of two pedestrian scrambles downtown is just one example of how Phoenix is constantly improving our infrastructure through innovation and data,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “These are exciting additions and will create a better experience for our residents, regardless of how they decide to travel.”
The two pedestrian scramble intersections are adjacent to the downtown Arizona State University campus on Taylor Street at 1st and 3rd Streets. With many people walking in this area, the pedestrian-only phase of the traffic signals is expected to improve safety and reduce delays for people walking and people driving.
Pedestrian Scramble Intersection“No matter how you travel on our city’s roadways, safety must always come first,” said Councilman Michael Nowakowski. “The installation of two pedestrian scrambles in Phoenix is an innovative safety improvement for the many pedestrians commuting downtown to work, school, events or home.”
Street Transportation Director, Kini Knudson, explains that these intersections are another step to improve mobility in Phoenix, but added that they are part of a long-term strategy. “We are always looking at ways to improve our roadways for all users – people walking or jogging, riding bicycles or scooters or driving cars. For downtown Phoenix, the addition of these two pedestrian scrambles is just one of many recent and upcoming improvements.”
He highlights that the 3rd and 5th Avenues Project is under construction, the 3rd Street Project will begin construction in spring 2021, and that the Downtown Transportation Plan Update demonstrates that our infrastructure is set up for success. Learn more about the department’s capital improvement projects here.
The pedestrian scrambles were both installed and activated in October, which is National Pedestrian Safety Month. People walking are encouraged to only cross when given indication from the traffic signal. Diagonal crossing is only acceptable at these two specially marked crosswalks. At all other intersections, pedestrians should cross at designated crosswalks as indicated by the paint markings.
People driving are reminded to always come to a full stop on red and to expect people crossing in any direction during the pedestrian-only phase. The city encourages people to always be alert and on the lookout for the wide variety of people who use Phoenix streets. Recently, also as part of National Pedestrian Safety Month, the Street Transportation Department launched a new public service announcement campaign, Scan the Street for Wheels and Feet.

|Harmon Library Library is Celebrating 70 Years of Public Service||https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phxtv/1525||PHXTV||9/24/2020 3:15:00 PM||https://youtu.be/Fx4rRkoqoeg||Harmon Library Library is Celebrating 70 Years of Public Service||<div class="ExternalClassEA20DB2507104361A29CE4520B9AC58A"><html>
<p>Built in 1950, the original Harmon Library (located at 411 W. Yavapai) was Phoenix Public Library's first branch facility. Built on land donated to the city of Phoenix by the Harmon Foundation, Harmon Library has been a center of learning and community for 70 years. The library, with 10,000 books, a 75-seat auditorium and two sound-proof rooms for listening to records cost the city $100,000 to build in a neighborhood where most residents were poor. <br>In 2009, a new library was built next to the building. </p>
<span style="color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;background-color:window;">he old one was demolished. Among the city’s 17 public libraries, Harmon is one of the most popular. Even now, the library offers curbside pick-up of books and free seed packets for gardening. Children get free meals to go from the Kids’ Café, in partnership with St. Mary’s Food Bank.</span>
