About the Project​​​​​​

The Phoenix Street Transportation Department is in the design phase of a project that proposes safety and connectivity upgrades for pedestrian and bicycle use along Colter Street between 15th Avenue and 20th Street. 

Camelback Road, Missouri Avenue and Bethany Home Road have extensive business, commercial and office park activity that increase opportunities for vehicles turning into and out of driveways. Since most car-bike or car-pedestrian collisions occur when drivers are turning, a street such as Colter Street offers a safer alternative for those walking or riding bikes.

Colter Street is considered a collector street, and there is no plan as part of this project to cl​ose any portion of the street to vehicle traffic.

Project History​​​​​​

The planning and pre-design phase of this project began in 2020. The goal of that phase was to identify the types of infrastructure improvements that would make it safer for those traveling east-west on foot or by bike on Colter Street. That phase included a public engagement process to gather community input through surveys about proposed conceptual design options. That engagement effort collected valuable feedback from hundreds of residents.

Community Engagement & Next Steps​​​​​​

The project team presented an initial 30% design concept to the community during a virtual public meeting in December 2023, and opened a community survey to gather resident input. Feedback was received from residents along the 3.3-mile project corridor. The project team is in the process of reviewing that input and working to determine what modifications may be necessary to advance the project to the next stage.

Public involvement is vital to the success of every project and more opportunities for community engagement will be announced in the coming months. Please follow this page, or the department's Public Meetings​ webpage, for information about upcoming public engagement opportunities.
