Neighborhood Traffic Management Project - Granite Reef Road and 86th Street
The City of Scottsdale Transportation Department has been working with residents in two areas, Granite Reef Road from Osborn Road to Thomas Road and 86th Street from Earll Drive to Thomas Road, to address speeding and cut-through traffic concerns.
Update - September 2011
On March 19, 2009 the Transportation Commission approved funding for this neighborhood traffic management project. Click here to see the presentation to the Commission.
At this meeting, residents presented a signed petition in support of a “landscaped neighborhood traffic circle” at the intersection of Granite Reef Road and Earll Drive. The Transportation Commission approved the change to a roundabout.
The preliminary design of the roundabout is finished and is being sent for review to the adjacent property owners. The city is seeking support from the adjacent property owners before moving forward with the final design of this project, which could take six months to complete.
The proposed plan for Granite Reef Road consists of two raised median islands north of Earll Drive, a roundabout at Granite Reef Road and Earll Drive, and two raised median islands south of Earll Drive.
The proposed plan for 86th Street includes two raised median islands to facilitate pedestrian crossings across 86th Street to Pima park. Through this neighborhood meeting process, it was requested that the city improve the pedestrian crossing environment between the neighborhood and park.
Your patience in regards to these traffic calming projects is appreciated.
