Overview: In the city of Edmonds, Washington, a five-way intersection, located where 212th Street SW, Bowdoin Way, and 84th Avenue W converge, was often congested, and several serious accidents had occurred there. The intersection was given an “F” rating (“A” is best) in a 2008 transportation plan based on traffic delay time, congestion, and other factors. In 2012, the city decided to go ahead with a plan to replace the intersection with a roundabout, which would increase the location’s rating to a “B.” The new intersection would also improve accommodation for bicycle and pedestrian activity. To this end, the city required safe mechanisms for pedestrians to cross the intersection.
