    It has been a nightmare to get in and out of our neighborhood for quite some time!! I live at 1021 Mercer for Over 40 years! The eastbound traffic REFUSES to keep the exit onto state Open. it Sucks!!!

    What's the plan for this property purchased by ACHD in 2014?

    It is dangerous to turn left from Anderson onto Veterans. Many parents have to do this everyday when picking up their children. There is a sign on the corner that blocks the view.

    Hi,

    Is there a way to reduce the speed of traffic on 32nd? We walk our children to Sunset park and must always be aware of people speeding down the street.

    I have experienced trouble with the buttons pedestrians use to request to cross but the buttons have been replaced within the last year and the new ones work very well. That helps but this intersection is still scary.

    I would like to see a pedestrian crosswalk here. There are businesses I often use on both sides of the street and I see people from neighborhoods north and south of State having to walk a long way to the nearest pedestrian crosswalk.

    Pedestrians crossing illegally and traffic entering and exiting state street are a constant cause of accidents

    I believe that the neighborhood would greatly benefit from an additional, or several additional, crosswalks on State Street. In particular, we often witness jaywalkers crossing State Street around 35th or 36th streets, which is not only dangerous to these individuals, but also holds up traffic in the area.

    "A pedestrian was hit by a car yesterday evening (7/22/2012) at the intersection of 32nd and Neff St. The driver left the scene."
    Drivers are driving too fast on 32nd. With no sidewalks, it's putting pedestrians in danger. I walk my dog in/on that same area on our way to Sunset Park.

    The existing crosswalks are very effective, allowing pedestrians and bicyclists an opportunity to cross this busy intersection safely. Occassionaly I bicycle north on 36th, headed to the greenbelt at Veterans Park. Other than the inconvenience of getting to the crosswalk, pushing the buttons, and waiting my turn, crossing the intersection works very well.
    please, no new medians, and please, rip up all roundabout plans!

    Even tough what people see along state street here is mostly businesses, there are many home owners who have lived in this area for a long time. It is important that their quality of life ,living in a neighborhood, is considered and oreserved as much as possible, Walking down state street from 23 all the way out is a very unpleasant experience; unsafe, unsightly, and loud, with often speeding traffic very close. Enhanced public transportation, safe pedestrian and biking paths, ways to cross the street safely at reasonable intervals, and beautification will go a long ways to improving the safety and livability of this area> Better for bushiness and home owners.

    I am a member & licensed Cycle Instructor thru League of Am Cyclists & know this intersection is statistically one of the most dangerous in the valley. Avoid it by using Hill Rd or Green Belt. Do NOT ride thru this intersection; get off bike & walk and that is scarry. Recommend a tunnel underground for non motorized & let the cars have the road.

    One of the most common places to build excessive speed in this area is on Neff between 32nd and 28th. It is entirely residential and there aren't any stop signs within this stretch. A stop sign east to west at 30th and Neff would help immensely.

    There also needs to be sidewalks along this street. Kids walk out in high speed traffic in the dark, in the winter, because there are no established sidewalks. I know that on the west side of this 32nd street block, between Hanson and Bellomy, there are curbs and gutters, and all of the landscaping is set back to accommodate a sidewalk. I guess its just waiting for something bad to happen first.

    Someone, some day, will be killed on this street. I have seen cars up to 50mph here. There is nothing to keep people from reaching 45 mph every 10 minutes.

    Many children and bicycles travel down 32nd and cars go faster than the posted speed limit. Scary situation.

    This intersection would benefit from speed control as there is a crosswalk and direct access to Sunset Park. 32nd street in general needs speed control - as the number of bikes and pedestrians with people driving too fast is a serious accident waiting to happen. Lets slow the traffic down before we have another serious accident - or worse....

    32nd street is very dangerous as pedestrians, bicyclists and speeding cars are all using the same space. Not having sidewalks on much of the street makes it frightening. A woman was hit by a car just yesterday. Numerous animals have already been killed on the road. Street calming measures need to be added to keep more traffic from racing down this and other roads in the Sunset Neighborhood

    Clear signs that peds/bikes have right of way with green light/walk signs over the cars turning right would be inexpensive. More expensive solution is bridge for peds/cyclists. I think this is heavily used as is, and would be even more so if access to the park were safer. I'm an experienced cyclist and I hate this intersection because cars turn right all the time without yielding to peds/cyclists going straight.

    I often ride my bicycle southbound from 36th Street to Veterans Memorial Parkway to get from Hill Road to Ustick. At State St, I must get in the left turn lane, then complete a partial turn and then ride on the sidewalk on the east side of VMP, because there is no bike lane, and hardly any room, along the west side of southbound VMP. There really need to be bike lanes here!

    This lovely park is difficult to reach. The button pressed to cross the street seemingly has no function, which is why people are constantly pounding on it. I've waited through several light cycles to cross in the designated cross-walk, despite hitting that stupid button. I have observed many people grow tired of waiting and they cross when it is not safe or they cross outside of the cross-walk by running across the road. I like the elevated foot/bike cross ways idea.

    There is an inordinate number of physically disabled and mentally disabled individuals that appear to come from the old-folks home, who decide to walk across the middle of State Street during rush hour to get to the gas station. I am waiting for the day when one of them is hit by a car and killed. These folks impede both bicycle and car traffic. Either fine the nursing home or put an elevated cross-walk in here so they can cross safely.

    There is very little police presence and enforcement follow through at the State / Veteran's intersection.
