Given the Arch Bridge area redevelopment, higher traffic density on Willamette Falls Drive will make it more difficult to turn left from (or onto) West A Street.
This three-sided intersection can be difficult to navigate, especially at rush hour. Due to the odd angles and the hillside, sight-lines here are poor. It can take a while for each car to safely turn left.
The diagrams I've reviewed (see the attached image) show some new islands on the West A side; but otherwise don't appear to show improvements to traffic control. This intersection very much needs it.
Perhaps a roundabout (as seen at Stafford / Rosemont / Atherton ) would get the job done. Beyond that, a stoplight with refuge lanes would make it possible to turn left safely, and without impeding traffic.
This would also make it much easier for non-vehicular traffic to safely cross Willamette Falls Drive. If control improvements are already in the works, then please let us know you have in mind. Thank you.
