18th Avenue and 89th Street Intersection

The local street intersection of 18th Avenue S and E 89th Street has been monitored for several years for safety based on resident concerns. This area is anticipated to be a part of the 2022 Pavement Management Program. This provides the opportunity to proactively address the intersection safety concern with a built solution that could be constructed as part of the PMP work in 2022. As part of the proactive traffic calming process for local roadways, Engineering will be hosting a neighborhood meeting in this area to work with the residents to identify all of the traffic safety issues and propose options to address the safety concerns. A temporary device trial will then be installed, with traffic data collection before and during the device installation. A follow-up survey will be sent to the neighborhood to get feedback on the intersection control treatment. The process will then move to the trial of a second device or directly to a Planning Commission and City Council public process for approval of construction in the 2022 PMP, depending on the results of the first trial and survey.
