West Marine View Drive and Alverson Boulevard

A temporary safety enhanced crosswalk at the intersection of West Marine View Drive and Alverson Boulevard was constructed in January 2019. Push button-activated solar rectangular rapid flashing beacons were installed on the curbside and in the median.

The project would make the crossing permanent, installing a raised median island on West Marine View Drive. A raised pedestrian refuge will be constructed on the south side. A pedestrian path will be installed between the crosswalk at West Marine View Drive and 2nd Street on the east side of Alverson Road, with rectangular rapid flashing beacons across Alverson Boulevard at 2nd Street.

41st Street and Grand Avenue

The project will also install solar powered rectangular rapid flashing beacons for an uncontrolled crosswalk at the intersection of 41st Street and Grand Avenue. Channelization and signing improvements will be made approaching the intersection and advanced beacons will warn drivers approaching eastbound on 41st Street before the curve. ADA ramps will be constructed on the north side of the intersection at two locations.
