Targeted Safety Improvements

The City of Redmond's Targeted Safety Improvement Program (TSIP) identifies existing and potential traffic safety problem areas. This program implements projects to reduce crashes, injuries, deaths, and their related losses through proactive collision prevention, reactive collision response, and multi-modal safety improvements. For additional program information, please see the Targeted Safety Improvement Program website.

Out of this program, a specific list of projects is designed and constructed. The current TSIP projects are outlined below along with project details and estimated timelines.

Some of the projects include installing Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons (RRFB) at some crosswalks.  These devices are activated by pedestrians and people riding bicycles.  Once activated, a highly visible flashing pattern alerts drivers that a person is entering the crosswalk.

Projects in Design

NE 81st Street and 161st Avenue NE
Design a mid-block crossing with curb ramps, crosswalk markings and consider a rectangular rapid flashing beacon system (RRFB) to improve pedestrian safety.
