​About the Project​

The City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department is seeking input on proposed changes to the travel lane striping on 3rd Avenue from Osborn Road to Indian School Road. The proposed improvements to the existing bicycle lanes at this location will enhance the Phoenix Sonoran Bikeway.

This location is scheduled to receive pavement treatment in Spring 2021, creating a cost-effective opportunity to change the current lane striping and improve safety and connectivity.

This project will also link to nearby projects with upgraded bicycle facilities on 3rd Avenue, improving connectivity for people riding bicycles. Learn more about those projects:

​Proposed Changes

Below is the typical proposed striping layout. These plans will change slightly approaching intersections (for example, due to the addition of turn lanes). The detailed plans throughout the entire corridor are available below.
