Ravenna Ave NE and NE 98th St

Traffic Calming Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
Ravenna Ave NE is a residential street that parallels Lake City Way NE, and handles more traffic. When there is congestion along Lake City Way NE corridor, some people use Ravenna Ave NE as a bypass. Ravenna Ave NE is not designed to handle increased traffic and speeds are often higher than the posted speed limit. In addition, there have been several serious crashes between people biking and driving at the intersection of Ravenna Ave NE and NE 98th St. Traffic calming benefits residents and students who attend Waldorf, Nathan Hale and Jane Addams Schools by enhancing safety and predictability.

Project Solution(s):

Install speed radar feedback signs

Install speed cushions

Construction anticipated July - September 2018

Pinehurst Way NE and NE 117th St

Crossing Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
The intersection at Pinehurst Way NE and 117th St, contains a high volume of pedestrian traffic, and is a major crossing zone for those traveling to Hazel Wolf K-8 School. This intersection has been identified as a potential crossing for a future neighborhood greenway. Crossing improvements enhance safety and pedestrian connectivity in the area and we're working with neighbors to identify a solution and funding strategy.

Project Solution(s):

Identify the preferred crossing upgrade for this intersection

Partner with the Neighborhood Greenway, Safe Routes to School and Pedestrian Master Plan programs for implementation

Broadview Thomson K-8 and N 132nd St

Street enhancements

Project Description and Goals:
NW 132nd Street is a major pedestrian connection for kids and parents accessing Broadview Thomson K-8. However, the street has substandard walkways that are disconnected and often blocked by parked vehicles and ditches. As a result, many pedestrians are forced to walk in the street. Installing low-cost improvements separating pedestrians from people driving enhances safety and adds predictability. The community recently received a Neighborhood Matching Fund grant that identified the low-cost improvements being installed.

Project Solution(s):

Install wheel stops and landscaping

Potentially re-design and re-channelize the corridor

Construction anticipated late 2018 - early 2019
