PHURA and Planning Commission Recommend Traffic Flow Concept 4 to City Council

Both the PHURA board and the Phoenix Planning Commission have recommended to City Council Concept 4 as the preferred traffic flow configuration in the City Center area.  Concept 4 creates one-way single lane travel on Main Street and on Bear Creek Drive, with bike lanes and improved sidewalks and pedestrian crossings.  Planning commission also recommended a few tweaks for traffic designers to study that would add a second northbound lane to Bear Creek Drive, beginning at 2nd Street.  Video of the Traffic Flow Presentation at the Open House 1/24/14 is available in the sidebar.  Below are links for Preferred Concept 4 and Alternative Concept 6.
