The City implemented a traffic safety improvement of a bump-out/curb extension at the corner of 37th Ave NE and NE 178th St, near Brookside Elementary School. This was installed to create a safer crossing for pedestrians as there have been vehicle/pedestrian collisions and many near misses. By shortening the distance pedestrians travel at the crossing, a reduction from three lanes to two lanes, the intersection will be much safer moving forward. Pedestrians will be more noticeable by motorists in all directions with the improved extension of the sight distance.
