The T2050 Mobility Improvements Program was established to improve mobility safety and connectivity of all roadway users. The program will identify opportunities for new sidewalk construction, bicycle facilities and connections to existing transit stops.
A major part of the program is the mobility studies, which are being conducted in neighborhoods throughout the city.
For each mobility study there will be a public meeting, so we can reach out to the public to get their opinions about their neighborhood issues.
Listed below are the neighborhood mobility study webpages. These webpages include details about the study schedule, public input opportunities and downloadable study resource documents.
Mobility projects that result from this program funding will focus on all streets (arterial, collector, and neighborhood), with a particular emphasis on providing safe, convenient ways for people of all ages and abilities to walk and bike to their important destinations -- such as schools, markets, parks, entertainment, and public transit. By doing this, the City of Phoenix hopes to improve the quality of life, health and neighborhood pride for all residents in these areas.
The Mobility Improvement Program was allocated 15% of the Street Transportation Department’s T2050 funds. This allocation will be utilized to meet the T2050 commitments to install 135 miles of new sidewalks and 1,080 miles of new bike lanes by 2050. A portion of the new sidewalk and bicycle facilities commitments will be achieved through the Street Transportation Pavement Preservation Program and the new and expanded major streets program.
In 2016 and 2017, the Citizen’s Transportation Commission (CTC) provided guidance on factors for prioritizing T2050 Mobility Improvements Program sidewalk projects and for identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing additional multimodal projects.
Street Transportation staff analyzed eleven data sets focusing on where people walk and ride bicycles most often throughout the city, and where there are existing system deficiencies and/or gaps in bicycle, sidewalk, and transit infrastructure. This data analysis is reflected graphically in mobility improvement maps.
As of April 2017, the CTC and the City Council's Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee has recommended two primary focus areas for mobility improvement projects and further analysis:
Major Street Sidewalk Improvements - Conduct additional project assessments for major street sidewalk improvements for ADA non-accessible bus stops.
Mobility Improvement Areas for Further Study - Move forward with eleven areas for mobility assessments that will focus on safe pedestrian and bicycle facilities improvements funded by T2050.
