The City of Avondale is evaluating ways to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists along Garden Lakes Parkway from Thomas Road to 107th Avenue. What types of transportation improvements would you like to see in the Garden Lakes neighborhood?
Avondale residents are encouraged to provide input on transportation safety improvements along the Garden Lakes Parkway corridor. We value our residents’ opinions and ideas and your input assists staff in ensuring that these transportation improvements are consistent with our City’s vision.
DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT
Garden Lakes Parkway Corridor Safety Study (Draft):
This is a request by the City’s Engineering Division to identify potential transportation improvements to the parkway that will improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists to travel along, and cross, Garden Lakes Parkway. Such improvements may include raised landscaped medians along the parkway, pedestrian-actuated hybrid signals (i.e. HAWK signals), chicanes, speed tables/humps, pedestrian refuge islands, rapid flashing rectangular beacons, and other traffic calming measures. The final approved improvements will then be planned and scheduled into the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) as funding for these improvements becomes available.
Please tell us what you think! Your input will be considered by City Staff during the review and approval process.
A public meeting will be held to present and discuss potential improvements. The meeting will be held at 6:30 PM on Thursday September 19, 2019 at the fire station located near 99th Avenue and Campbell Avenue in Phoenix. The final recommendations will be defined following the feedback from the general public and presented for consideration to the City Council in December of 2019.
