The Bicycle Project along Colter across the Center of Phoenix is only getting ready for planning...see the attached pdf for that design/construction schedule. Public comment will be during the early design process.
CITY OF PHOENIX STREETS DEPARTMENT NEEDS YOUR FEEDBACK ON A TRAFFIC RESTRICTION IDEA
The Phoenix City Streets department is asking for your feedback for a possible Colter Street lane restriction at Central Avenue. (see below)
Please review the possible lane restriction proposal and send your feedback to Heather.Murphy@phoenix.gov with comments by March 8, 2023.
This traffic restriction could be installed by JUNE 2023 with neighborhood support.
The MEDLOCK Neighborhood has been requesting the City help us mitigate the traffic being generated by the many new businesses on our borders since 2011 when the first traffic studies were done and high volumes were shown along Colter and 3rd Ave. (North and South). Our first calming project for volume was "no turn" signs along 7th Ave. and a temporary round-a-about at Colter and 3rd which which was removed later. Some blocks requested speed bumps to approved and installed to help slow vehicles.
The new 3rd Avenue project was to calm traffic along the Sonoran Bike Route and was partially designed and reviewed but never funded, That was about 2019.
With more than 17 restaurants on our Eastern border, three on Camelback and one on 7th Ave. and Missouri, our neighborhood gets flooded during meal hours from the 12 entrances and exits to our neighborhood streets.
Please take the time to review and comment. A neighborhood meeting is Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 6:30.
at the Church at Central/Missouri.
