    With an increase of traffic flow exiting the new businesses on E Idaho Ave, there has been an increase in U-turns at this stop light. This road is not quite large enough to accommodate U-turns, many vehicles have to fully stop during their U-turn and back up to clear the curb, which delays traffic and is dangerous for all involved. Also when vehicles are turning right on SE 4th Street when able, there is confusion when there is U-turns as well.

    Suggest implementing some sort of traffic control at this intersection. Traffic on SE 5th ave can get heavy and it is hard to get on from SE 10th at times. More traffic is building due to dispensary opening as well.

    Better signage to inform drivers who has the right of way when continuing straight at the traffic light. It is confusing and seems to be more of a guessing game as to who will be going.

    There is heavy pedestrian traffic across this overpass. I think it would be safer if there were sidewalks along the entirety of the overpass and continues down the road on both sides.

    The abundance of traffic flow on this road is dangerous for how many vehicles are trying to enter and exit to the businesses along East Lane. Many people do not wait for vehicles to turn,so they pull out from behind the vehicle that is stopped to turn and the road is not large enough to accommodate this action. This is extremely unsafe.

    There seems to be alot of confusion with the new stops signs at this intersection, many do not know when to go or many do not even abide to the STOP sign at all. These stops signs have also caused a lot of traffic build up due to the traffic flowing in from SE Goodfellow St. and those exiting the Blue Bird Car Wash.

    Public transit has been utilizing this entrance during busy times in order to avoid narrow entrances off of East Lane. However, this entrance is also very narrow and public transit buses have difficulties turning right in to this parking lot area as well.

    Very narrow entrance. Public transit buses have difficulties entering parking lot in order to make stop at Walmart.

    Future redesign of fixed route bus services would like to include additional transit bus stops along Idaho Ave., East Lane, Goodfellow and possibly 13th St.

    Traffic goes through here. It has almost began to be used as a main roadway. Extra lighting and walk ways may help. Finding a way for the traffic to flow better would be good.

    I have noticed that traffic will get held up on the bridge. I know that the bridge is maintained but having the bridge reinforced could increase safety considering how old the bridge is. Also caution lights that activate when traffic is held up would give drivers and pedestrians a choice to continue or to turn around.

    Better signage from freeway off ramps guiding folks to businesses on Goodfellow St

    This turn is a little confusing about who has the right of way.

    People have to walk a long way to get around the fence a break in the fence and a path to the bus station would be very valuable.

    This very narrow egress and ingress to these retail centers. It’s not uncommon for people to get held up turning right into the center and coming out.

    The intersection at SE 5th and SE 1st Ave is very conjested for an under developed intersection and the amount of traffic.
    Also, there needs to be crosswalk construction to assure safety of pedestrians crossing East Ln.

    At all sections of E Idaho Ave, I would appreciate more buffers between foot traffic and the road. I sometimes see children crossing with parents and it just seems SOOOOO unsafe.

    Additional improvements also needed to be added to SE 5th Ave. It has a sharp gravel incline with no walking path except over the bridge. This cuts off working class and working poor families who live near the bridge from accessing services. I've seen many parents with strollers trying to ascend over this bridge and pedestrians are far too close to the traffic that crosses over. I'm 100% supportive of improvements to E Idaho Ave, but this bridge has always been a major concern for me.

    People getting out of the dollar store or DHS parking lot is hard with so much traffic if something could be in place to have the flow better that would be great. I think the issue is also on the other side of the road as well for people trying to get out by harbor freight or from Waremart.

    I would like to recommend that more thought be given to mobility issues and that benches/seating be provided at regular intervals, whether that is on the streets or along walkways/paths. It would make a huge difference in my ability to enjoy and explore my community and would add much to my ability to exercise within my capabilities - and to my quality of life as well.
    In addition, please keep in mind that not all mobility issues involve wheelchairs and scooters. I have neither, yet I do have multiple, non-visible disabilities that affect how much and how far I can walk before needing to rest. And I'm not the only one in our community, by a long shot.
    For the same reasons, I would want more bus stops. I have not been able to use public transportation since the system changed to regular, very distanced stops and I've been told that Malheur Transportation is no longer providing door-to-door service except for medical transportation rides. Those are two options that did exist, but exist no longer. Even with a cane, I can't navigate the changes.

    I would not want to see the stops at Walmart moved out to the street. Many people with mobility issues would find that impossible to navigate. For myself, my mobility is such that having to walk any but an extremely short distance would not be possible and it would affect my ability to patronize local businesses.
