State Street

Together, partnering agencies are endeavoring to build the State Street corridor for all users, where residents can live near the office, recreate, dine, and shop in diverse, community-oriented neighborhoods.

Below are some current or recent initiatives: 

2021 | State Street and Pierce Park Lane Intersection (ACHD) - ACHD is improving the State Street and Pierce Park Lane intersection by realigning Pierce Park Lane to improve safety, including adding medians and U-turn opportunities where necessary. The project will improve transportation options by providing a multi-use pathway for bikes and pedestrians on the south side and sidewalks and a buffered bike lane on the north, as well as improving transit stops and pedestrian crossing opportunities.

2017 | State Street Transit Oriented Development Study (COMPASS) - Conduct market analysis and draft TOD station area concepts.

2019 | Increased service on the 9 State Street in the peak period and on the weekend (Valley Regional Transit) - Service increased on the 9 State Street to run every 15 minutes between 6-9am and 3-6pm every weekday and increased to run every 30 minutes all day on Saturday. These service improvements will make it easier to travel by transit on the State Street corridor which is especially important during periods of construction. 


2019 | First and Last Mile Transit Connections (Valley Regional Transit) - To increase public access to transit VRT will initiate a pilot project with Lyft to provide connections to transit stops along State Street. Transit riders can book a discounted Lyft trip to or from transit stops along State Street including the stop at Saxton and State, which will be improved with a shelter to make it more convenient for waiting passengers.
