Missouri Active Trans Project

The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) has awarded the City a Design Assistance (DA) grant to develop conceptual alternatives to close sidewalk gaps and improve bicycle facilities in the area immediately west of Grand Avenue, between Missouri Avenue and Bethany Home Road.

The objective of the project is to improve mobility and access to businesses, bus stops and residences. The project area includes approximately four total linear miles of missing sidewalk. Potential improvements to bicycle facilities in this area will also be evaluated, including addressing gaps in the system.

Driver Safety 

Reminder to keep you safe!

traffic light out graphic

Monsoon storms and other incidents can cause traffic signals to lose power.
If you approach a traffic signal that has no power what do you do? Stop!
A blacked-out intersection works the same as a four-way stop.
Stop at the intersection and then proceed when you know other vehicles, bicycles or pedestrians have stopped.
