This corner really needs a crosswalk across military. As well as signage before so People might slow down.
The City will perform pedestrian traffic counts at this intersection to better assess the situation and justify any improvements.
The Military Rd S & S 160th St Project, identified in the City of SeaTac Transportation Master Plan as ST-116, proposes to fill in the sidewalk gap along the north side of 160th Street between 34th Avenue and Military Road. If pedestrians are crossing this intersection and utilizing the sidewalk on the west side of Military Road as one is not available on the east side, the need for a crosswalk may be eliminate by the ST-116 improvements. Additionally, this intersection may not be the safest location for a crosswalk due to the road’s curvature and associated visibility issues. Intersections north or south of Military Road and 160th may be considered instead for a crosswalk as a part of ST-116. It is important that crossings be accessible to everyone per the Americans with Disabilities Act standards, which is why pedestrian facilities identified in ST-116, including sidewalk and ramps, are needed for a proposed crosswalk.
The Sidewalk Advisory Committee is a good option to advocate for sidewalks projects. They develop selection criteria to rank potential projects and make recommendations to the council. Public comments are welcome at the end of each meeting (held monthly on the third Thursday from 6-7pm).

As we have not yet conducted a traffic study and I did not see any pedestrian traffic during my site visit, please responds to the following questions/comments to help us better understand the situation:
1. Confirm issue is related to pedestrians crossing Military Road and not 160th Street.
2 To help us target peak pedestrian usage: On what day of the week and at what time of day have you noticed pedestrians crossing? In what direction are they traveling after crossing?
3. Are you aware of a location between 34th and 164th to where pedestrians are traveling such that crossing at 34th Avenue or 164th Street would be inconvenient?
Voting lets your government know.
What is this?
