Roosevelt Neighborhoods


Mobility 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. ​

​Mobility Area Description​                               ​Mobility Area Location Map         ​

Mobility Area Location Map ​The Roosevelt Neighborhoods Mobility Area is bisected by two of the Valley’s largest freeways: State Route 51 (Piestewa Freeway) and the I-10 Loop 202. The SR 51 is a major connection to the north Valley, while the latter provides direct connections to east Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, and Mesa. The 202 poses a significant barrier for people who need to connect between the north and south by foot and bike, with the only crossing points located along 24th Street and 32nd Street.

There are three large medical centers in the Area: Maricopa Integrated Health System, Comprehensive HealthCare Center, and St. Luke’s Medical Center (immediately west of the Area). Two public schools are within the Area: Wilson Elementary and Creighton Elementary, as well as two charter/ parochial schools: Excelencia School and St. Agnes School. William T. Machan Elementary lies immediately north of the Area. There are two small parks: Willow Park and Hilaria Rodriguez Park. The Grand Canal cuts across the northeast corner, providing walking and bicycling connections to many points to the northwest and southeast. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the nation’s fifth busiest airport, is on the immediate south side of the Area.
