Design / Improvements
Design of Phase II of the Grand Canalscape project is now underway. The project is
composed of three segments located along the Grand Canal alignment: Segment One
from I-17 to 15th Avenue, Segment Two from 16th Street to 36th Street, and Segment
Three, from 40th Street to the Phoenix/Tempe border at 56th Street.
The combined segments of Grand Canalscape Phase II total nearly eight miles of trail
which will connect to the trail system developed in Phase I, creating a continuous multimodal
trail from I-17 to the Phoenix/Tempe border at 56th Street.
The Grand Canalscape Phase II project improvements will include a hard surface trail
along the north bank of the Grand canal, dusk-to-dawn lighting, neighborhood connections
at some local streets, and signalized crossings where streets intersect with the canal.
