The Harrison Road Bike Lane project is a Transportation Enhancement program that included design and construction for 6-foot bike lanes along both sides of Harrison Road from 1,050 feet north of Catalina Highway, to the main entrance of Sabino High School at East Vallarta Drive, just north of Snyder Rd.  Total distance of 1.9 miles installed.

These bike lanes benefit the high school students, staff, and visitors that need to access Sabino High School, as well as visitors to McDonald Park, located approximately 1 miles south of the school.

This project was included in the PAG Regional Bicycle Plan 2009 as well as the PAG 2040 Regional Transportation Plan, both of which had extensive public participation throughout the planning process. In addition, it received great support from community groups, including the Greater Arizona Bicycling
Association and Activate Tucson.

Prior to construction, this section of Harrison Road was a narrow two-lane roadway with no paved shoulders, which forced cyclists to ride in the travel lanes and made pedestrians choose between dirt shoulders or walking in the roadway. The addition of these 6-foot bike lanes provides space for cyclists and pedestrians to safely navigate the roadway, and allows for safer passing by vehicles.
