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

The Westside Neighborhoods Mobility Area is mostly composed of single-family homes, but there are several condominium and apartment complexes, particularly along Thomas Road and Osborn Road. Three schools are located here: Justine Spitalny Elementary, P.T. Coe Elementary, and West Phoenix High School. Three others are located adjacent to the Area, including Joseph Zito Elementary, Pueblo Del Sol Elementary, and Madrid Elementary. There are two parks in the Area -- Orme Park and Ladmo Park -- with Sueño Park lying just outside of the Area on the south side of Encanto Boulevard.

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:

  • Motorists drive too fast on 39th Avenue next to P.T. Coe Elementary School

  • We're concerned about students trying to cross 43rd Avenue at Virginia Avenue

  • Vehicle traffic and speeds on Osborn Road are a concern for students of Pueblo del Sol and Madrid elementary schools

  • Many motorists disobey the 15 mph school zone signs, creating safety hazards for students

  • Many drivers don't stop for pedestrians

  • There are safety concerns for bicyclists

  • There are other pedestrian safety concerns, including stray dogs, uneven sidewalks, and inadequate street lighting
