The City of Tucson Transportation Department is planning two bicycle and pedestrian safety improvement projects. The Third Street and Treat Bicycle Boulevard projects will use neighborhood streets to expand the citywide low-stress biking network by creating north/south and east/west routes to jobs, neighborhood destinations, schools, and parks.
Five community input events are scheduled to present information and receive input. The first two are Thursday, Sept. 19, 5:30-7 p.m., at the Historic Y (lobby), 738 N. Fifth Ave., and Saturday, Sept. 21, 5:30-8:30 p.m., at La Madera Park, 2700 E. La Madera Drive. Saturday's event features free bike repair, a bike-in movie, and ice cream.
These projects are part of the voter-approved Proposition 407 Tucson Delivers Parks and Connections program which helps fund improvements to parks and construction of new bicycle and pedestrian routes. For more information, contact Ryan Fagan at Ryan.Fagan@tucsonaz.gov or (520) 837-6699.
