A Do It Response for a Can Do City.

The Downtown Transportation Study is a “DO IT” response to the SA2020 challenge “DREAM IT, MAP IT, DO IT.” Safe and efficient downtown transportation can catalyze new development and transform the downtown experience for residents, business owners, employees and tourists alike. The Study will align with the HemisFair Park Area Framework and Master Plan, VIA Streetcar and Multimodal Plans and the City’s new Bicycle Master Plan and Complete Streets Policy.
