Kittitas County and the City of Ellensburg are partnering together on a safety improvement project at the intersection of University Way and Reecer Creek Road. The project will improve roadway safety for all modes of transportation, better manage existing and future traffic growth, reduce backups, and decrease the likelihood of accidents.
The proposed intersection design will be a “smart” signalized intersection. A “smart” signal is able to detect traffic, pedestrians, and bicyclists as they approach the intersection. The project includes a new traffic signal, vehicle detection, illumination, ADA pedestrian accommodations, and changing the pavement markings on Reecer Creek Road.
