Project Updates

Project Update Notice - May 2022

Project Update Notice - March 2022

The Phoenix Street Transportation Department appreciates the community’s participation and thoughtful input while it considered proposed changes to the section of Fillmore Street from Central Avenue to 7th Street. City staff used stakeholder input gathered during various outreach efforts and engineering judgment to select the final design.

In March 2022, the department shared with the community that the final design for the section of 1st Street to 7th Street would include bike lanes with vertical delineators. 

Following additional design work, in May 2022, the department updated the community about the Central Avenue to 1st Street section, informing residents that bike lanes with vertical delineators will be installed along that stretch and all on-street parking would be removed.​

​​About the Project

​​The Street Transportation Department proposed adding bike lanes to Fillmore Street from Central Avenue to 7th Street. The proposal was to remove two driving lanes and add buffered bike lanes, and that vertical protection would be added to the bike lanes where possible.

Prior to the proposed changes, there were sharrows and a continuous green stripe in the outside driving lanes of Fillmore Street. The proposal was to replace those 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, the Street Transportation Department is developing a plan for more bike infrastructure improvements east of this project area.
