Van Buren Street Enhancement Project

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Stemming from an earlier proposed project on Van Buren Street, the City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department is again asking for community input on a project that seeks to enhance safety and aesthetics along the Van Buren Street corridor from 7th Street to 24th Street. The Street Transportation Department is not proposing changes to the lane configuration of Van Buren Street. Van Buren Street will continue to have two vehicle travel lanes in each direction with center turn lane.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Input from members of the surrounding areas will help shape and define what safety and beautification options Street Transportation can pursue.

​Enhancements could include:

  • Pedestrian Safety Improvements

  • Sidewalk Improvements

  • Pedestrian Seating Areas

  • Landscape Features

  • Added Lighting

  • Improvements to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) curb ramps
