SE Johnson Creek Blvd. (79th Place to 82nd Ave.) Intersection Improvements


Design phase

Updated: Nov. 15, 2023

The primary reason for crashes at this intersection is from failure to yield to oncoming traffic. To improve safety in this area, traffic signals will be installed at the intersection of SE 79th Place and SE Johnson Creek Blvd.

The project will also add sidewalks, and install ADA-compliant curb ramps at intersections and a raised median on Johnson Creek Blvd. from SE 79th Place to several hundred feet west to allow right-in and right-out only movements from both sides of the road.


To provide a safer environment for all travelers by restricting turn options onto Johnson Creek Blvd and installing a signal for pedestrians to cross Johnson Creek Blvd.


  • Design: March 2023 to Feb. 2025
  • Right of way: June 2023 to Feb. 2025
  • Construction: Spring 2025 to Fall 2025

Traffic impact
