SE 6th St/SE 8th St
Neighborhood Traffic Safety Services has received numerous requests to address residents’ concerns with vehicle speeds and cut-through traffic over the years on Southeast Sixth and Eighth streets, between 100th Avenue and Bellevue Way. A traffic committee of resident volunteers was formed to work with city staff to help develop a conceptual plan for improvements to address the traffic concerns.
In 2014, elongated speed humps and a trial one-lane zone were installed on Southeast Eighth Street as well as signage and pavement markings on Southeast Sixth. The one-lane zone was removed and is currently being redesigned as a slow-point at the intersection of Eighth Street and 101st Place Southeast. This new slow point will be installed with a new painted walkway on the north side of the street for people walking and biking from 100th Ave Southeast to 101st Place Southeast.
New neighborhood ballot
In April 2015, the neighborhood project area will have a ballot to see if there is support to install three speed humps in conjunction with one-lane zones on Southeast Sixth Street and an additional speed hump on Southeast Eighth. If this project receives enough support to move forward, the speed humps will be installed at the same time as the slow-point and new walkway on Southeast Eighth.
