Traffic Circles on Nanz Avenue for Safety and Sustainability Thursday, Jan 23 2014
Neighborhood News 8:16 pm
Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9) has announced she is allocating $9,000 District 9 CIF for a pilot project to construct two traffic circles: one where Nanz intersects with Iola Road and the other at Nanz and Macon Avenue. This green infrastructure is in cooperation with the City of St. Matthews.
The residential traffic circle is designed to be just large enough to force the motorist to travel beyond the adjacent curb line, which ensures a lower appropriate speed for navigating the intersection, but not necessarily a full stop, thus improving safety and reducing carbon emissions.
“Traffic circles have proven to be effective for reducing speeding in our neighborhoods,” said Ward-Pugh. “Traffic circles can also bring a burst of scenic beauty to an area for a relativity small amount of money.”
Traffic Circles are raised islands which are placed in the intersection and thereby slowing cars down to circulate around the island. It also allows a better thoroughfare for cyclists who wish to access Seneca Park and then move on to Cherokee Park.
“The City of Seattle has found traffic islands have decreased the amount of traffic accidents in areas where they were placed,” said Ward-Pugh. “The city also saw a decrease in speeding as a result.”
The Appropriations NDF / CIF Committee gave its approval to the idea on Wednesday.
The Councilwoman says the next step will be to let residents in the area know about the proposed change.
