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

Status

Project is in design.

Updated: March 9, 2022

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.

Why

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.

Schedule

The county began the design phase in March 2022. Right of Way activities are scheduled to start in Sept. 2023. Construction is scheduled to begin spring 2024. 

Traffic impact

Single lane closures and detours may be needed during construction.

Current activities

Kittleson & Associates is working on design plans for this project. A traffic study will be conducted in the area.
