The revised channelization reassigned the existing pavement width within the confines of existing curbs to provide a single through lane each direction, augmented with a continuous two way left-turn lane with left turn pockets at intersections, and added bicycle lanes on each side of the street. The revision improved motorized and non-motorized capacity, transit operations, and the walking environment by increasing the separation between pedestrians and vehicles and reduced the likelihood of traffic accidents.
Wheelchair ramps at intersections were rebuilt at NE 80th Street, NE 83rd Street and NE 85th St to improve pedestrian street crossing operations. Traffic signals were modified at the three project intersections incorporating new flashing yellow arrow left turn phase to improve operation efficiency. New traffic signal heads were installed at the three project intersections to support the channelization revisions.
