Durango Curve Neighborhoods

Durango Curve logoMobility Study Goal

The goal of the T2050 Mobility Studies is to improve safety, connectivity, and accessibility for all people -- regardless of their age or ability level -- who walk, ride a bicycle, or use transit to get to their important destinations. 

Update / Next Steps

A list of the proposed recommendations to improve pedestrian and bicycle mobility in the Durango Curve Neighborhoods were identified by the study team based on an analysis of the study area and public input. This list is included in the Proposed Conditions Report available below in the Study Documents section. Following the Proposed Conditions Report an executive summary will be made available on this webpage to show the key takeaways from the Current Conditions Reports, Proposed Conditions Report, and public involvement activities.

Mobility Area Description

locator mapAlfred F. Garcia Elementary is the primary residential and community destination in the Area. Much of the Area is zoned commercial and light industrial, including almost all of the south half. The Maricopa County Jail and Superior Court complex lie just outside the southwest corner of the Area, with the Roosevelt Canal defining part of that boundary. The east boundary abuts Interstate 17, at its Durango Curve section. There are no parks, community services or health/ care facilities.




​Key Destinations 

  • Alfred F. Garcia Elementary School
  • Sherman Parkway
  • Holy Trinity Outreach
  • Roosevelt Canal

​Residents Are Telling Us . . .

We interviewed residents, business owners, and other community leaders in the Mobility Area to get their likes, dislikes, and opinions about mobility and accessibility. Here are some of the key takeaways:
  • Not enough shade, street lighting, sidewalks, and bike lanes

  • Vehicles drive too fast

  • Not enough safe places to cross the street

  • Lots of cut-through traffic from the freeway

  • 27th Avenue & Jefferson is a safety challenge for pedestrians and bicyclists
