The Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is conducting a planning study of the Broadway Road Corridor, from 90th Street on the west to Meridian Road on the east.

El Departamento de Transporte del Condado de Maricopa (MCDOT) está llevando a cabo un estudio de planificación del corredor de Broadway Road, desde la calle 90 en el oeste hasta Meridian Road en el este.

Study Overview | Resumen del estudio

Thank you for your interest in the Maricopa County Department of Transportation’s Broadway Road Corridor Improvement Study.

This corridor stretches from 90th Street on the west to Meridian Road on the east with a project influence area extending one-half mile around the existing roadway. The MCDOT Active Transportation Plan 2018 identified pedestrian and bicycle gaps on Broadway Road.

The purpose of the Corridor Improvement Study is to address pedestrian and bicycle needs in the area which were previously identified in the Active Transportation Plan. The study will examine ADA compliance, existing and future development, roadway capacity, drainage, and environmental considerations. and environmental considerations.

This is a long range transportation study identifying potential improvements along the corridor. Funding for construction and implementation timelines will be determined at a later date outside of this study effort.

Please take a look at the Study Overview, Key Challenges, the preliminary alternatives that we applied to the corridor (Conceptual Alternatives), and the further refined alternatives (Candidate Alternatives). We are looking for feedback on the potential corridor improvements, particularly the Candidate Alternatives.

Gracias por su interés en el estudio para mejorar el corredor de Broadway Road del Departamento de Transporte del Condado de Maricopa.

Este corredor se extiende desde la calle 90 en el oeste hasta la calle de Meridian en el este. Esta área del proyecto se extiende media milla alrededor de la carretera existente. El plan de transporte activo de MCDOT 2018 identificó áreas necesarias para peatones y bicicletas en Broadway Road.

El propósito del estudio de mejoramiento del Corredor es mirar las necesidades de peatones y bicicletas en el área que fueron previamente identificadas en el Plan de Transporte Activo. El estudio examinará el cumplimiento de la ADA, el desarrollo actual y futuro, la capacidad de las carreteras, el drenaje y las consideraciones ambientales.

Por favor revise la descripción general del estudio, los desafíos clave, las alternativas preliminares que aplicamos al corredor (Alternativas Conceptuales) y las alternativas más refinadas (Alternativas Candidatas). Estamos buscando comentarios sobre las posibles mejoras del corredor, particularmente las alternativas candidatas.
