56th Street from Thomas Road to Camelback Road
Study and Project Background
Using a Design Assistance Grant provided by the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), a study was conducted to develop a design concept for implementation of bicycle and pedestrian safety improvements on 56th Street from Thomas Road to Camelback Road in Phoenix (1.5 miles).
This community-driven project was initiated to develop a consistent corridor that puts the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists first, meets ADA standards, completes bicycle and pedestrian gaps along the corridor, addresses utilities and storm drainage issues, and provides opportunities for green infrastructure and enhanced landscape features that provide shade. The proposal also promotes safe routes to school connections. The development of a complete streets environment that includes a sense of place is the overarching goal.
Virtual Public Meeting
The Street Transportation Department hosted a virtual public meeting via Webex on October 25, 2022 at 6 p.m., to discuss the design phase of the project. You can view the meeting below.
