SE 6th St/SE 8th St
To diminish speeding and cut-through traffic on Southeast Eighth and Sixth streets, between 100th Avenue Southeast and Bellevue Way, the city has installed elongated speed humps on both streets, along with neighborhood signage and pavement markings on Sixth.
The following will be installed in summer 2016, weather dependent:
- Painted walkway on the north side of Southeast Eighth Street, from 100th Avenue to Bellevue Way, requiring parking to be restricted.
- A curve warning sign combined with an advisory speed of 15 mph will be installed for the vehicles travelling south on 100th Avenue Southeast, turning east on Southeast Eighth Street.
Neighborhood Traffic Safety Services received numerous requests to address residents’ concerns with vehicle speeds and cut-through traffic in the area. Traffic studies and field visits confirmed a significant amount of cut-through traffic using Southeast Eighth and Sixth streets to get to Bellevue Way in the afternoon. A traffic committee of resident volunteers worked with city staff to plan improvements.
Southeast Eighth Street: In 2014, two elongated speed humps and a temporary one-lane zone/chicane were installed. 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.
Southeast Sixth Street: In 2014, neighborhood signage and pavement markings were installed. In 2015, three one-lane zones were installed, combined with elongated speed humps.
