Project description

Design and construct a mini-roundabout at 8th Avenue SW and SW 108th Street, including a rectangular rapid flashing beacon at the west crosswalk, improvements to the sidewalks, ramps to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other safety improvements.

Why is King County doing this project?

This project will improve the safety of pedestrians and other users in the White Center community. The intersection was identified as a High Collision Location in King County's report in 2016. The project aligns with the County Executive's priorities of Equity and Social Justice, and Regional Mobility. The intersection is part of a designated "safe route to school" for four Highline schools, and connects to proposed project 1129600 RSD Highline School District Improvements. On-site observations by Road Services Division staff indicate that some drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians -- many of which are students. In addition, pedestrian ramps on all quadrants of the intersection are not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
