Richmond Beach Road Rechannelization public meeting

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

The roadway would be changed to one lane in each direction
with a center turn lane and bicycle lanes

There will be a public meeting for the 60% design review of the Richmond Beach Road Rechannelization project.

Thursday, October 12, 2017 from 6 - 8pm at Shorewood High School, 17300 Fremont Avenue N
Shoreline 98133

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

The primary goal of the 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 Avenue NW and NW Richmond Beach Road, and the roadway segment of NW Richmond Beach Road from 3rd Avenue NW to 8th Avenue NW. A rechannelization was recommended as mitigation for the collisions.

In 2016 City Council approved the rechannelization as part of the 2017-2022 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).

The proposed cross-section was developed as part of the 2014 Transportation Corridor Study, studying the impacts of the Point Wells project.

60% Design means that there is time and opportunity for significant changes, if needed, based on public input.
Come to the public open house to see how public feedback has already shaped the design and have an opportunity to comment on the plan before it is finalized.

Another opportunity for the city of Shoreline to generate some revenue by ticketing the many drivers that will illegally pass, speed, run the red lights, etc. Get those motorcycle police and traffic cameras in place! We could fund the entire city with traffic infractions and eliminate sales tax.

What bothers me the most about this plan is not whether it's needed or not, it's the fact that we have other glaring dangers for pedestrians due to the lack of sidewalks in this city that continue to be ignored. Yes, yes, I know there's a new committee looking at sidewalks, but this will just be a squeaky wheel decision making process and ten years from now, we'll still have the dangerous walking areas. Cars and bikes can wait. Walkers should be our priority. I'm tired of dodging cars coming head on at me as I walk with my children.
