The Highline Canal Multi-use Path is identified in the city of Tempe's Comprehensive Transportation Plan and the Tempe 2030 and 2040 General plans. Phoenix and Chandler have portions (completed and incomplete) of the regional Highline Canal, and the Town of Guadalupe has funding to build a portion in their community.
The purpose of the project is to design and construct a 10-foot wide concrete multi-use path with lighting, landscaping and public art. The project includes street crossing treatments and possible bicycle/pedestrian bridges across the canal. The project is located along the Tempe portion of the Highline Canal and links directly to Chandler and the Town of Guadalupe for a distance of 3.5 miles.
