NE Sandy Boulevard Safety Improvements

Intersection of NE Sandy Boulevard at 31st Ave Intersection at NE Glisan Street at 87th

What happening now?

The project is being awarded to a contractor for construction in the Fall of 2019. This project is being combined with BH Highway Demonstration Project and Glisan/87th, NE Project for construction.

Project background and description

The original Fixing Our Streets project focused only on safety improvements on NE Sandy Boulevard. In order to better leverage resources, the project combined with safety improvements on NE Glisan Street at NE 87th Avenue since both have similar treatments (rapid flashing beacons and curb ramp replacement).

Sandy Boulevard is a High Crash Corridor, meaning that a high concentration of crashes occur on it. This project will increase pedestrian safety and will hopefully reduce the likelihood of crashes by making crossing improvements at the intersection of NE 31st Street and and NE Sandy Boulevard, including the addition of flashing beacons. The curb ramps will also be updated to current ADA standards. These improvements will make Sandy a safer street for everyone to navigate. 

NE Glisan Crossing Improvements originally included improvements to Crossings at NE Glisan Street at 87th Avenue and at 134th Avenue. The crossing at NE 134th Avenue was dropped because of the upcoming East Glisan Street Update. The project was chosen because of the crash crash history and using the Pedestrian Crossing list.
