Turn restrictions have been in place on SE 16th St/108th Ave SE and SE 16th St/Bellevue Way since September 5 and has been effective at discouraging commuter traffic from using neighborhood streets.

After three months of gathering feedback, measuring traffic volumes and observing how the pilot turns restrictions are operating, modifications will be made to the turn restrictions that will help to facilitate residential access while also making the restrictions more visible and conducive to effective enforcement.

The changes will be made in mid-December and be extended through June 2018. To improve community access, westbound access from SE 16th St across Bellevue Way will open; left turns are still restricted from westbound SE 16th to southbound Bellevue Way. Monday-Friday, 4-7 PM. To increase visibility and compliance of the turn restrictions, stop signs will be added to the northbound and southbound legs of 108th Ave SE at SE 16th St making this intersection an all-way stop. The all-way stop is in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Southbound 108th Ave SE traffic must turn right at this intersection onto SE 16th St Monday-Friday, 4-7 PM.
