STREETS | Bellevue Ave and Minor Ave and E Union St

Crossing Improvements

Project Overview

A non-standard intersection was formed at the intersection of Bellevue Ave, Minor Ave and E Union St, where two different street grids meet. Even though a traffic circle exists in the center to slow traffic into the intersection, it has been observed that intersection movements are unclear especially for people who walk. We will mark splitter islands and install "Stop" signs and stop bars to clarify the movements into the intersection. We will also maintain the vegetation in the traffic circle to improve the sightlines and make spot pavement repairs to remove uneven surfaces.

This YVYC program has been coordinating with the Melrose Promenade project, and this work will complement their design.

Project Solutions

  • Mark splitter islands
  • Install new "Stop" signs and stop bars
  • Maintain the landscape within the traffic circle
  • Make spot pavement repairs

Neighborhood: First Hill

Total Cost: $90,000

Project Schedule and Updates

We anticipate construction as soon as spring/summer 2020.
