Chandler, which is in the early design stages for two concrete shared-use pathways along canals in the western part of the city, has scheduled an open-house public meeting for Tuesday, Dec. 12.
The meeting will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Chandler Sunset Library, 4930 W. Ray Road. City officials will discuss plans for a 0.9-mile path along Kyrene Branch Canal and a 0.25-mile path along Highline Canal.
They will connect to concrete paths in Tempe. Bike lanes also will be added on Orchid Lane and 54th Street, according to a release.
The paths were identified in Chandler’s Transportation Master Plan, and a project assessment was completed last year.
The objective is “creating safer, more comfortable pedestrian and bicycle environments and connecting to regional concrete paths,” the release stated.
The projects will include such elements as lighting, some landscaping and a rest node.
Those unable to attend can view the meeting exhibits and provide comments at www.chandleraz.gov/KyreneHighline.
