Next week is the last week residents can take an online survey the city is conducting about the reverse lanes on Seventh Avenue and Seventh Street. The information will be submitted to a task force charged with developing recommendations to keep, eliminate or alter the controversial system, which adds an additional lane of traffic going north- or southbound during morning and afternoon rush hours.
Supporters say the reserve lanes alleviate congestion for commutes in and out of downtown. Opponents worry the lanes, which limit left-turn movements, are dangerous and encourage cut-through traffic in local neighborhoods.
The last day to take the survey is Oct. 31. It is at phoenix.gov/STREETS/index.html.
