Improve safety with ADA ramp upgrades and signal pole replacement.
What Problem Will This Improve?
The existing poles and span wires holding the traffic signals at these intersection are old and do not meet current safety standards. The two Dorian Avenue intersection signals have limited benefit to downtown traffic and low pedestrian usage. Removing them will improve traffic flow along this main route through town. The reduction in signal maintenance costs will help fund improvements at other, busier signal locations in downtown Pendleton. Existing signal poles that support utilities such as lighting, city power/phone cables, etc. will remain in place, as needed.
ADA ramp upgrades at the SE Court Avenue/SE 1st Street intersection will include eight new ramps, two per corner, each facing the crosswalk (see diagram) to meet required safety standards.
