Phase 1B & 2

Phase 1B includes the 20th Street segment from Highland Avenue to Missouri Avenue and recommends bike lanes, buffered bike lanes, protected bike lanes, and shared use path where appropriate. Phase 2 includes the 20th Street segment from Missouri Avenue to Glendale Avenue, and then Glendale Avenue from 20th Street to Ocotillo Road. Shared Lane Markings (“sharrows") are recommended on this segment, which will assist users in reaching the Piestewa Peak Trail network.

Schedule

At this time, there no funding identified for these phases.​

Project Overview

As part of an effort to make the city's roadways safer for people who drive cars, ride bicycles and pedestrians, while attempting to maintain the existing number of travel lanes and improving connections with transit, the City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department will be implementing a series of transportation improvements for 20th Street between Glendale Avenue and the Grand Canal south of Osborn Road.​20th Street Project Corridor

The 20th Street project corridor was identified as the fourth priority out of 39 corridors for implementation in the City of Phoenix Bicycle Master Plan adopted by City Council in November 2014. 

In 2016, city staff applied for and were awarded a Maricopa Association of Governments Design Assistance Grant to complete a project assessment report to assess the current conditions and develop a series of safety improvements for the 20th Street bicycle corridor to transform it to a low-stress environment for bicyclists. 

20th Street has two to four travel lanes in the corridor and can provide a s​afe, easy, rideable and walkable thoroughfare to connect residents to schools, employment, restaurants and shopping (i.e. Town and Country Shopping Center, Camelback Colonnade Center) and major bus routes.  The proposed project will greatly enhance connectivity with existing and planned bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and transit service for this transportation corridor.   

The proposed plan for this project maintains the existing number of travel lanes on 20th Street; enhances pedestrian safety; and includes various bicycle lane designs such as buffered bike lanes. 

  • Bike Lanes

  • Protected bike lanes

  • Buffered bike lanes

  • Pedestrian Safety Improvements

  • Shared-Use Pathway

  • Intersection Improvements

​Project Location​

The 20th Street corridor is located approximately a quarter mile east of SR-51, and provides access to four grade separated non-motorized passes of the freeway at the Grand Canal, Campbell Avenue, Maryland Avenue, and the Arizona Canal. 

​This corridor is the 4th highest priority of the City of Phoenix Bicycle Master Plan, connecting the regional shared-use path along the Grand Canal to the access road.​ ​
