Public meeting to take place for Kyrene Branch & Highline Canal shared use path

Nov. 30, 2023
Kyrene Highline Project

CHANDLER, Ariz. –  Chandler is in the early stages of design for two concrete shared-use pathways along canals in west Chandler where unpaved pathways currently exist. A 0.9-mile path along Kyrene Branch Canal and a 0.25-mile path along Highline Canal will connect to concrete paths in the City of Tempe. Bike lanes will also be added on Orchid Lane and 54th Street.

These pathways were identified in Chandler’s Transportation Master Plan and a project assessment was completed in Fall 2022, with the objective of creating safer, more comfortable pedestrian and bicycle environments, and connecting to regional concrete paths. The projects will include lighting, wayfinding, some landscaping and a rest node.

An open-house public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2023, from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the Chandler Sunset Library, 4930 W. Ray Road. Attend the meeting to learn about the project and provide your feedback. If you can’t attend in person, view the meeting exhibits and provide your comments.
