Intersection Redesign

Kaylie Duffy

M. Urban Planning

The crosswalk at the intersection of Rainier Ave. S and Mt. Baker Blvd. is unsafe. The nearby pedestrian bridge pillar makes it difficult for northbound vehicles on Rainier Ave. S to see pedestrians crossing the intersection. Quick right turns onto Mt. Baker Blvd. could cause a serious or fatal accident. Thankfully, the Accessible Mt Baker project plans to redesign this intersection; however, in the meantime the crosswalk needs to be shortened and made more visible through additional infrastructure and a tactical urbanism strategy.
