The City Of Flagstaff Receives $9.6-Million From The U.S. Department Of Transportation For The Butler Avenue Complete Streets Conversion Project

The City of Flagstaff has been awarded $9.6-million from the U.S. Department of Transportation to implement the Butler Avenue Complete Streets Conversion project. The city will convert nearly a mile of arterial road in the urban center of Flagstaff to a complete street. The project will run on Butler Avenue between Humphries and Sawmill. The project includes installing bike lanes that are grade-separated from motor vehicle traffic, three protected intersections, a new pedestrian crossing, upgrades to an existing pedestrian crossing and pedestrian comfort features, such as landscape buffers, that also results in reducing speeds through the historic Southside Neighborhood. The area of Butler Avenue from Milton to Sawmill has seen 282 recorded crashes in the last five years, which includes nine serious injury accidents and one fatality involving a bicyclist. Work on the project is expected to begin in Spring of 2024 and be completed by the Summer of 2026.
