Mobility Study Goal

The goal of the T2050 Mobility Studies is to improve safety, connect​ivity, 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 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

The Golden Gate Community Center lies at the middle of the Area and is a well-established community advocacy and education organization. The Isaac School District Offices are located here, as is Isaac Middle School. A pedestrian-bicycle bridge over McDowell Road allows middle school students to safely cross busy McDowell Road from the neighborhoods on the south side. The Area has more schools in and adjacent to it than any other Area: Mitchell ES, Isaac MS, Esperanza ES, Isaac Pre-School, J.B. Sutton ES, Carl Hayden HS, Alta Butler School, and Udall Escuela de Bellas Artes. Three other elementary schools and one high school are within one-half-mile of the Area. Falcon Park is the only park in the Area, in the extreme southeast corner. There is one healthcare center in the extreme southeast corner of the Area.

​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:
  • "The intersection of 39th Avenue and Palm Lane is a challenging location; school students have been involved in near-misses."

  • "There are many missing sidewalks in the neighborhoods adjacent to schools, especially along 38th Avenue."

  • "McDowell Road to the north and I-10 to the south are huge barriers for students to cross."

  • "There needs to be more traffic calming on local streets adjacent to schools, particularly along 41st Avenue and along Palm Lane."
