SE 8th St Traffic Improvement Committee


SE 6TH ST and SE 8TH ST Traffic Improvement Project
NTSS has received numerous requests to address residents’ concerns with vehicle speeds and cut-through traffic over the years on SE 8th Street, between 100th Ave SE and Bellevue Way. A number of traffic studies and field visits were conducted and studies show that there is a significant amount of cut-through traffic using SE 8th Street and SE 6th Street to get to Bellevue Way in the afternoon. A traffic committee was formed of resident volunteers to work with City staff to help develop a plan for improvements to address the traffic concerns.
SE 8th St Improvements
Initial improvements on SE 8th St were installed in 2014 that included two elongated speed humps and a temporary one-lane zone/chicane.  In addition, two elongated speed humps and a temporary one-lane zone/chicane were installed on SE 8th St.  The design of the chicane was adjusted due to resident feedback and was ultimately removed due to additional concerns.  A third elongated speed hump was installed in its place in 2015.
SE 6th St Improvements
Neighborhood signage and pavement markings were installed on SE 6th St in 2014.  In 2015, three one-lane zones were installed along SE 6th St that were combined with elongated speed humps to further address speeds and cut-through traffic.
Upcoming Installation!
The following is proposed to be installed in spring/summer 2016 weather dependent:
  • Painted walkway on the north side of SE 8th St from 100th Ave SE to Bellevue Way, requiring parking to be restricted. 
  • A curve warning sign combination with advisory speed of 15 mph will be installed for the vehicles travelling south on 100th Ave SE and turning east on SE 8th St.
