70th Street Pedestrian and Bicycle Study
Over the past few years, Transportation staff has been reviewing and studying pedestrian and bicycle connections throughout the city. Recently, we determined a need to improve the pedestrian/bicycle connection near 70th Street, between Wilshire Drive and Thomas Road. (View map.) There were several reasons for this:
- No existing sidewalks in the neighborhood
- Provide this missing pedestrian/bicycle link in this area to downtown
- Improve pedestrian/bicycle safety in the neighborhood
This proposed project would safely connect the 70th Street corridor to downtown Scottsdale. Funding for the study and design is from a Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) grant.
In June of 2009, we met with property owners adjacent to the corridor to get their input and opinions to determine the best possible pedestrian and bicycle connection through this area and provide a preliminary design for the neighborhood. (View the presentation from that meeting.)
In November of 2009, we met with residents of the neighborhood to present preliminary designs and get further input and feedback. This information will assist us as we complete the study and final design.
