Indian School Road-What is Phoenix ‘Pedaling’?

August 28, 2018

I can’t believe what Phoenix city staff is ‘pedaling’ for Indian School. They want to take out a lane of traffic between 7th Ave and 19th Ave on Indian School to install bike lanes. I decided to document how nutty this idea is, so I recently drove west bound on Indian School (during early rush hour). There were so many vehicles backed up at Central Ave that it took me three lights to get through and then I had slow going to 19th Avenue. Meanwhile there were zero, none, no bicycles going either direction on Indian School in the bike lanes that already exist. Obviously, the proposed changes are being implemented to appease some political interest rather than to help traffic flow. Why can’t bicycle riders (I am one) use the sidewalks that already exist, especially since we have spent thousands of dollars installing ramps at every intersection?

Can’t we restore some sanity in our transportation planning?
