ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Seattle Department of Transportation and the Fauntleroy SW Boulevard Project posted their final Traffic Analysis Report prepared by subcontractor DKS on May 12 in an update and it concludes that the proposed bike lanes will have little impact on signal operations, Signal timing changes at intersections along Fauntleroy Way SW and 35th Avenue SW are required to accommodate growth, The proposed additional marked crosswalks across Fauntleroy Way SW at SW Avalon Way and at SW Oregon Street are not recommended, traffic through the corridor will be "acceptable" through the year 2044, and pedestrian and bicycle volumes were assumed to double and triple respectively through 2044.

From the Summary of the report:

The proposed project will construct landscaped center medians, realigned intersections, improved street lighting, protected bike facilities and improved pedestrian facilities with defined sidewalks and new crossings of Fauntleroy Way SW.
