Phoenix is retrofitting streets throughout the city with the goal of making them friendlier to bicycles and pedestrians.

Some streets are losing vehicle lanes under proposed projects. Others are getting new street lighting, bike lanes and intersection improvements.

The Phoenix City Council highlighted the changes as a priority for the city when it recently approved a “complete streets” policy. The aim is to improve infrastructure for multiple modes of transportation and will include modifying the Street Transportation Department’s design guidelines.
