New Stop Sign in the Works for Warder

Stop for pedestrian signs(Intersection of Warder and Princeton. New crosswalk signs were added in May 2011)

Traffic safety at the intersection of Warder and Princeton streets has been a concern for a while. I’ve received many requests over the past few years seeking better traffic calming. In response, DDOT installed new crosswalk signs in May 2011. After the November 5, 2014, accident at the intersection, DDOT agreed to study the safety of the intersection again.

I’ve since learned that DDOT has completed their field review and crash analysis of the intersection, and based on the location of this intersection in relationship to the Recreation Center and the number of accidents, DDOT will be installing new stop signs making it an all-way stop.

DDOT is in the process of submitting the necessary documents required to implement the change at this location, so stay tuned. I’ll provide an update when its available.

    Are there plans to do this for the intersection at Quebec? I think they should add stop times at both intersections..

    This is great news. There are so many kids in the neighborhood and that only seems to be growing just based on what a see. I would love to see DDOT do a whole liveability study for Parkview to make some comprehensive safey improvements. I think bump outs at the intersections on Warder, especially around the school, Park Morton and the Rec Center would be great since so many kids are in and around those areas every single day. With the new development coming to McMillan and the redevelopment of Park Morton, we are going to see more traffic AND more kids and pedestrians. All of these are good things but the time to plan for improvements is NOW, not later. Thanks for staying on top of this Kent. I have witnessed one too many accidents outside my door and was terrified it would take a pedestrian getting hit before they City took some action.
