Cherry Hill Intersection Improvements

Under the Major Institution Master Plan (MIMP) process many intersections around our neighborhood were identified for improvements and operational design changes such as curb bulb-outs at intersections, cross walks, traffic signals, and even some bus stop upgrades.  Even though the improvements have already be identified from a high level, they have not been designed and Sabey would like to have input from the community to help refine their plans.

Most of those elements are pretty obvious but term curb-bulb is new to some folks.  You see them everyday, all over Seattle.  They are all about pedestrian safety.  They extend the sidewalk into the street, reducing the time and distance it takes a pedestrian to cross. Curb bulbs can also prevent drivers from parking in front of crosswalks or blocking curb ramps. The visibility between drivers and pedestrians is also improved with curb bulbs because pedestrians are brought farther out into the street, making crossing locations more recognizable.

Phasing of the improvements is of interest to Sabey, do to some potential advantages to delivering these improvements ahead of development, but the city will need to weigh in on that, and they also want to hear from us.  Please visit the council website or attend our October 8th meeting for specific details.
