​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Fillm​ore (Central Avenue to 7th Street) Proposed Bike Lanes

About the Project

​​The City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department is proposing adding bike lanes to Fillmore Street from Central Avenue to 7th Street. The proposal would remove two driving lanes in order to add buffered bike lanes. Vertical protection will be added to the bicycle lanes where possible. Currently, there are sharrows and a continuous green stripe in the outside driving lanes of Fillmore Street. The proposal would replace these driving lanes with bike lanes, and remove the green stripes and sharrows.


Project Area​

​The area for proposed lane changes is on Fillmore Street from Central Avenue to 7th Street. Additionally, east of this project, the city has been working on creating improvements. For more information, visit the Garfield-Edison Park proposed bike improvements webpage.​​​

Project Details

​Buffered bicycle lanes with vertical protection would be added where there is space available. One driving lane in each direction from 1st Street to 7th Street would be removed. One of the proposed option alternatives from Central Avenue to 1st street would remove three parking spaces. Exiting turn lanes and medians would not be affected in either plans.
