About the Project
The City of Phoenix is in the early stages of making pedestrian and other safety improvements to the North 32nd Street Corridor. The current study previously focused on North 32nd Street between East Shea Boulevard and East Cholla Street. After public input, the limits of the project have expanded to include North 32nd Street from East Cheryl Drive to East Cholla Street. This effort will include evaluating the following alternatives:
Right sizing the roadway for current and anticipated traffic volumes
Widening sidewalks for pedestrian safety
Reconfiguring dedicated bike lanes
Increasing the landscape elements along the corridor
Construction of State Route 51 resulted in a corresponding decrease in traffic volume along this portion of 32nd Street. This allowed the city to study ways to enhance the safety of the road, while contributing to a more vibrant community along the North 32nd Street Corridor.
Constraints such as overhead power lines on the western side, existing water and sewer lines, high pressure gas lines and other infrastructure will influence the design options for this area.
