The rechannelization work has started on Richmond Beach Road. The Road winds its way steeply downhill from the flat area at 8th NW in the 4-Corners business district, to Richmond Beach Drive at the Shoreline Sea.

Reflectors are removed by hand, one at a  time

Along the way are a couple of dangerous intersections. Richmond Beach Road has the distinction of producing a large percentage of vehicle and pedestrian accidents in Shoreline.

City Staff, in a proposal approved by City Council, recommended turning the current four lane configuration into one lane each way with a center turn lane and bicycle lanes.



Reaction from citizens has been mixed. Many applaud which they expect will be increased safety. Others are sure that the new configuration will be inadequate to handle the amount of traffic.

Monday, street crews were out removing the center lane reflectors.

The photos were taken at the corner of 15the Ave NW as the crew headed east.

The vast majority of actual Richmond Beach and Innis Arden residents are vocally against this. Anyone wanting to run for Shoreline City Council have been handed a gift-wrapped platform on which to win the majority of these votes.
