During peak periods, it can be difficult to safely enter West Pioneer from adjacent side streets and driveways due to major traffic volumes along this corridor. To address this problem, the city will stripe a two-way left-turn lane which will extend the existing turn lane at 15th Street SW and end west of Rose Place. On-street parking along this section of West Pioneer will be removed to accommodate the new center turn lane.
This change, to be accomplished later this summer, is expected to improve safety and traffic operations along this part of West Pioneer.
