SW Admiral Way: Multimodal Roadway Improvements
In July 2010 SDOT put forth a proposal to make multimodal safety improvements to SW Admiral Way. During a public open house held July 13th, 2010 and during the subsequent 2 week public comment period we heard from over 70 citizens. We heard support for pedestrian improvements and an up-hill climbing lane for bicycles. We also heard concerns about the removal of one downhill travel lane, possible congestion and diversion of traffic.
After hearing citizen input and further analyzing the lane usage, SDOT will maintain the existing vehicle travel lane configuration. In addition, we will install the following pedestrian and bicycle improvements on Admiral Way SW:
This decision is consistent with the analysis of current and future traffic conditions on the corridor, recommendations in the Pedestrian Master Plan and Bicycle Master Plan and input from the community received via the July 13, 2010, open house, letters and phone calls. This work will be completed in 2010.
The purpose of these changes is to enhance the pedestrian crossing at the SW City View transit stop, maintain transit efficiency, provide bicycle facilities and maintain vehicle carrying capacity. SDOT carefully considered the needs of all users on SW Admiral Way.
Implementation of the project is scheduled for September 2010. Residents will receive door hangers in early September regarding temporary parking restrictions during restriping (parking is restricted so that paint does not get sprayed on adjacent parked vehicles). Weather permitting; restriping will occur in mid to late September.
