The City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department is seeking input from residents, commuters and business owners on the future of 56th Street. As part of an effort to make the city's roadways safer for people that drive cars, ride bicycles, walk, and ride transit, the department is conducting a corridor study for the 1.5-mile-long 56th Street corridor from Thomas Road to Camelback Road. The 56th Street Corridor Study is a community-driven initiative aimed at creating a complete street design concept to safely accommodate all roadway users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Additionally, the project will identify and address Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility requirements; bicycle and pedestrian gaps along the corridor; and opportunities for green infrastructure along this important community corridor. The city encourages the community's participation including providing valuable feedback to the project team as the project progresses. Throughout the seven-month project process, three public meetings will be held. The public meetings will be interactive and will encourage active engagement by meeting participants. People interested in providing feedback on the 56th Street Corridor Study are encouraged to attend the public meeting listed below. The project team will be available at this meeting to answer questions and solicit comments on issues and priorities for the 56th Street corridor. The information presented at this meeting will be made available on the project webpage following the meeting. 56th Street Corridor Study Open House #1 Wednesday, June 20, 2018 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 3641 N. 56th St. Future public meetings and study updates will be posted on the project webpage.
