Small2_west_a_intersection

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.

[ Note - my original idea on this topic is no longer visible on the site, so I have re-entered it. ]

Good idea, the added traffic crossed my mind as I deal with this issue many times each week. Your idea sounds very GOOD.

Thanks Sally. It's hard enough for automobiles; I can't imagine pedestrians being able to safely use those two crosswalks, as cars come around the turn after two miles of 45MPH road.

Every living organism needs food to grow. Like animals and humans plants also require food. There is a instantassignmenthelp.com review by which plants make their own food known as photosynthesis. Glucose, oxygen and water are produced in the process in the presence of sunlight, carbon dioxide water and chlorophyll.
