City seeks comments on downtown Scottsdale pedestrian project priorities

Do you want wider sidewalks on Goldwater Boulevard? How about better lighting on Miller Road? Whatever your desires to make downtown Scottsdale better for pedestrians and bicyclists, the Scottsdale Transportation Department wants to know. 

The department is in the process of finalizing a list of recommended projects that they will present at the Transportation Commission meeting on Thursday, Nov. 17. The Commission will then vote whether to support or modify the list. 

Projects under consideration include improving continuity of walking and bike routes, increasing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility, adding pedestrian ramps, widening sidewalks, removing obstructions and improving crossing locations, among others.  You can view a map of the areas prioritized for improvements
