Open House Thursday for Richmond Beach Road rechannelization

Sunday, June 18, 2017

The City of Shoreline will hold an open house for the Richmond Beach Road Rechannelization project on Thursday, June 22, 2017, 6:00pm - 8:00pm, Calvin Presbyterian Church Sanctuary, 18826 3rd Ave NW, Shoreline 98177.

The format will be as follows:

1.      15-30 minutes for sign in/ looking at the displays

2.      30-45 minutes for a short presentation by City staff followed by a Q/A session

3.      The remaining time will be used for informal conversations with City staff and residents' further exploration of the displays.

Overview and History

This project will rechannelize Richmond Beach Road/ NW 195th St/ NW 196th St from 24th Ave NW to Dayton Ave N from four lanes to one vehicle lane in each direction and a center turn lane.

The primary goal of this project is to improve driver, pedestrian, and bicyclist safety and mobility.

Rechannelization also provides the ability to implement on-street bicycle lanes as well as pedestrian refuge space for pedestrians crossing the street between controlled intersections.

The project corridor has a history of collisions, and includes two of the high collision locations from the City’s 2017 Annual Traffic Report; the intersection of 3rd Ave NW and NW Richmond Beach Road, and the roadway segment of NW Richmond Beach Road from 3rd Ave NW to 8th Ave NW. A rechannelization was recommended as mitigation for the collisions.

In 2016 City Council approved the rechannelization as part of the 2017-2022 CIP.

The proposed cross-section was developed as part of the 2014 Transportation Corridor Study.

Umm - as a non-Richmond Beach resident who drives to Richmond Beach Park and obeys the speed limit - does this mean all the cars that currently speed will be tailgating me on my trips to the beach? Are there plans to deal with the road rage that will ensue when residents are no longer able to blaze up and down the hill?
