An effort is underway to improve Frye Road for bicycle use to connect the area to the larger trail system within Chandler.

The city was seeking feedback from the public in January and plans to finish the design of the project in May. The project would provide a safer and more comfortable option for bicyclists while connecting downtown Chandler with the Paseo Trail, according to city records.


The city was awarded a $3.2 million grant to construct protected bike lanes on Frye from approximately a half-mile west of Arizona Avenue to the Paseo Trail, according to city records. The new project would add a vertical or rolled curb to physically separate vehicular traffic from bicycles.

The Frye bike lanes project was awarded for funding and is programmed in the city’s 2021-30 capital improvement program with design scheduled for fiscal year 2021-22 and construction scheduled for the following fiscal year. It is expected the project will be finished by the end of 2022 or early 2023.

The project kicked off in November and is expected to cost $3.8 million overall, according to city documents.
