City to install new wayfinding signs along paths

Scottsdale is designated a gold-level bicycle friendly community by the League of American Bicyclists. One way it aims to become even friendlier is with improved wayfinding signs that are more visible, consistent and user-friendly.

The city plans to place the new signs along Indian Bend Wash Path, the Crosscut Canal Path, the Arizona Canal Path and Pima Path from Thomas Road to Indian Bend Road. 

The sign designs were initially approved by the Development Review Board in October 2016, but the project was not programmed for funding until the current fiscal year. During that time, the approval expired. The sign designs will be resubmitted to the Design Review Board on Sept. 16 for amended approval.   

Once the signs receive approval, installation is tentatively scheduled to begin in October. To learn more about the project, see example sign designs or provide public comments on the project, please visit and search “Wayfinding.”
