2017 Street Safety Plan

2017 Street Safety Plan

In preparation for the Old/Near North End Transportation Study Workshops in August 2017, the ONEN board approved a draft Street Safety Plan. The purpose of this draft plan was to promote discussion and solicit feedback from the neighborhood before finalizing a plan. We care about your opinion and want to make sure our final plan is well supported by the neighborhood.

This draft plan is based on feedback we received from past safety plans and neighborhood focus groups. We hope you agree that it will improve safety, traffic distribution, and public transit in support of our master plan. It will also prepare us for anticipated growth to our north (Renew North Nevada) and to our south (Downtown).

We invite all neighbors to review our plan and let us know your thoughts. We hope everyone was able to attend one of the identical interactive meetings hosted by the City on August 14 or 16. We also encouraged everyone to attend the Renew North Nevada Open House on August, 23rd to review the transportation sub-plan recommendations for the North Nevada Ave. Corridor.

On December 7, 2017 the City made this presentation at a public meeting to discuss the Near/Old North End Transportation Study.  This includes implementation of a few of the recommendations from our Street Safety Plan:

  • Turn lanes added on Uintah St at Weber and Wahsatch. Left Turn Signal will be installed at Nevada & Uintah St
  • Reduced speed limits
    • Neighborhood arterials (includes Wahsatch, Weber, Nevada and Cascade) reduced from 35 mph to 30 mph.
    • All other neighborhood streets are 25 mph.
    • Additional speed limit signs will be posted to alert drivers
  • Changes to truck routes to get commercial trucks off Nevada Ave
