247 neighbors want more bike and pedestrian paths that keep riders separated from street traffic in Mesa.

The paths Mesa currently has for bikes are great, but we want even more! Let’s continue expanding the paths to connect more of the city together for riders and walkers, especially in the southeast area of the city. And we should add separated bike lanes that connect to light rail stations from neighborhoods.

Existing multi-use paths:

I fully agree with the high priority (red) bike trail recommendations. These are relatively low cost and would improve access significantly. But also please move forward with the next piority (yellow) ones as well, especially in the north end of the city.

We should strive to make Mesa the most bicycle friendly city in the country. We certainly have the weather and the space for it.

The canals stretch for miles all around the city and are away from traffic. Let's utilize this resource and fully build out a network of multi-use paths. The completion of the Stadium Connector path means that we now have a artery to build onto. And the great news is there are some easy wins to make this a much bigger off-street network already.

My suggestion is to fully connect what we have done so far between the Tempe Canal, Sun Circle Trail, and Eastern Canals. There are a few stretches that if filled in would go a long way. After that, we can put a path on the unused canals banks to make every part of Mesa reachable.

Yes I totally agree. I'm an avid biker and would love for the canal paths to be more connected, and not having to worry about getting hit when crossing one without a crossing

Great feedback everyone! If you have more ideas of where you would like to see paths, let us know. This will be very helpful to the citizen committee. If there is a specific style of pathways you like, consider posting a picture. Examples from other cities are welcome. Keep it up!

I believe a crossing at Horne and Inca streets should be a high priority. This because high speed traffic runs through their, and there is no island in the middle of the road to stop and wait for traffic to clear.

There could be a pedestrian path that connects from Hampton by Cheshire to underpass the U.S. 60 to drive in between Crismon Creek down to Labelle.and Juanita. Just to keep out of the freeway traffic.

I LOVE the new trail connecting the two ball parks! I'd love to see the canal that goes North from Brown and Horne paved. You could pave it all the way out to Thomas and Higley. This would give you a paved multi-use path for almost 20 miles. It'd be the best way to get from North-East Mesa all the way to Sky Harbor on dedicated multi-use trail. The good news is those paths just need to be paved. The majority of the work is already done!

I would love to see the bike path near Riverview continue all the way out to Red Mountain or at least the bike park on Recker. A lot of cyclists ride on McDowell out to Las Sendas and a dedicated bike path like that would be much safer.

That is a great idea! - There are so many cyclists on McDowell. Too many bike accidents have happened. This would be much safer.
