About the Project​

The Phoenix Street Transportation Department continues to explore modifications to the design of Fillmore Street in downtown Phoenix to create safer east to west connectivity for people riding bicycles, or using other modes of active transportation.

In spring 2022, parking and two traffic lanes were removed on Fillmore Street between Central Avenue and 7th Street, and buffered and protected bike lanes were added on both sides of that corridor.

Fillmore Street, Central Avenue to 7th Street project

Next Steps

The Street Transportation Department is currently working through a feasibility study and pre-design phase for a project that would add bike lanes, or a two-way protected bikeway, on Fillmore Street from 7th to Central avenues. That project would connect to the changes referenced above that were made in 2022 to Fillmore Street east of Central Avenue to 7th Street.​

Depending on the final recommendations, on-street parking may be removed from one or both sides of the street between Central and 7th avenues. Signal timing may be impacted and turn lanes at signals may be removed. ​​

Project Area Connectivity 

Other bicycle infrastructure improvements in the downtown core that would enhance the Fillmore Street projects include: 

Community Outreach 

Public input is valuable to the feasibility study and pre-design phase of the Fillmore Street project, and to help the Street Transportation Department develop future roadway design concepts in downtown.

Thank you to the community members who participated in the online survey that was available in English and Spanish during late summer/early fall 2023. 

Public Meetings 

A public meeting to update the community about the project is anticipated for winter 2024, and a final public meeting is anticipated for spring 2024. Please check this page, and the department's Public Meetings webpage, for information about the public meetings schedule.
