Key Corridors Master Plan​

The Key Corridors Master Plan (KCMP) is a City initiative to change the way we look at our transportation system and the needs of the people who use it. Our City is changing rapidly – more people and businesses are moving here every day, neighborhoods and activity areas are being created, and people’s travel patterns are changing. 

T​he KCMP provides guidance ​for creating complete transportation networks to accommodate the many ways that people travel on our street system. ​

​ ​


This web page is your resource for using the KCMP

process and resources to select the appropriate context 

sensitive roadway cross-section for your project.


Key Corridors Mapping Tool

Use this interactive mapping tool to identify roadway functional classifications, Key Corridors and modal networks in order to identify context sensitive street cross sections.  Refer to the four step process below.

Launch the Map​

Our most vulnerable road users require special care to keep them safe as they travel
Bicyclists are safest when dedicated and connected paths and lanes are provided for them.
It is essential to create a well-balanced transportation network that allows vehicles to travel efficiently, while safely sharing streets.
Public transportation connects people to homes, schools, jobs, and many other important destinations.
Trucks and other large vehicles move people, goods, and services through our city.

How The KCMP Was Developed​​

​1. Learned From Previous Work​​

network illustration

Coordinated recommendations with more than fifty other studies and plans from the City and the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG)  

​2. Created Balanced Travel Networks

Using the previous studies and data, recommended balanceded networks that appropriately accommodate all transportation modes no matter which mode you use



​3. Identified Missing Pieces 

Identified the gaps and deficiencies and recommend solutions for improving corridors; each major transportation mode has its own safe and efficient way to travel as part of the overall balanced network

4. Developed Process and Tools

The KCMP process and mapping tools can be utilized to select the appropriate context-sensitive street cross-section for specific projects
