We’re planning for the future

This summer, with decreased traffic in the downtown area, Tempe will start a record-level number of improvements in the urban core. We are investing in important infrastructure improvements, such as water main, paving, intersection enhancements and Streetcar. 

The goal is to coordinate and phase these projects to minimize the inconvenience to businesses and residents, while getting the work done as quickly and efficiently as possible. Some things you can do:

  • Be aware of construction restrictions and plan extra travel time
  • Obey all posted traffic restrictions and give workers space.
  • Try alternative transportation. There are  several local buses, five free Orbit circulator routes, a free FLASH route and six light rail stops serving the Urban Core.
  • Try walkingbiking or using another mode to get around Tempe and avoid construction and traffic delays.

Please note: the below map does not include information related to private construction projects or short term (less than a month) utility projects. In addition, as projects progress timeframes and restrictions may change. Thank you for your patience as we make these important improvements.
