The Hardy Drive Streetscape Project will improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities, enhance the streetscape on Hardy Drive between the University Drive and Broadway Road. The project will include bicycle and pedestrian enhancements, public art, additional crosswalk opportunities, ADA improvements and landscaping. It is intended to promote neighborhood stability, sustainable business and development efforts while continuing Tempe's commitment to alternative modes of transportation. The University Drive Streetscape Project is identified in the Comprehensive Transportation Plan as part of the Tempe 2030 General Plan.
This project is funded with $1.2 million in federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant money. The city of Tempe would also contribute (through the transit fund) five percent of the total grant money received. The project is currently in the final design phase. Council direction will likely be sought in early spring 2013. Construction would then begin in early 2014 and last six to eight months.
