Make 63 existing bus stops ADA accessible within Intercity Transit’s service district of Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater, Yelm, and Thurston County. The purpose of this effort is to meet federal guidelines by constructing accessible 'landing pads' for ADA bus ramp deployment including, where appropriate, adding or improving curbing and ancillary storm water run-off. This project also undertakes improvements for pedestrian accessibility to transit stops that are adjoined at sidewalk or pedestrian pathways. Together, these improvements increase operational functionality and safety at the stop for the transit vehicle/driver, the riding public and, in particular, for riders who may have physical limitations or impairments.

The Walk N Roll program is the cornerstone of Intercity Transit's Youth Education programs that reduce drive-alone trips to school and build the next generation of safe and healthy pedestrians, bike riders, and transit users. This established, school-focused public education and outreach program helps students and families to access their schools and community through active transportation choices, and positively influences air quality in our region, neighborhoods, and around public schools by reducing congestion and idling on the trip to school and return home.

This project will improve school crossings on Carlyon Avenue at Lybarger Street and on North Street at Pifer Road and at Olympia High School west driveway. The existing 20 MPH school speed limit zone signing which currently has "When Flagged" or "When Children are Present" signing will be replaced. This project will include installation of School Speed Limit Zone flashing beacons and signing at the two locations listed above. Solar powered units will be installed. The intent of installing this type of traffic-control device is to get motorists' attention in a more effective way, by providing more positive guidance to motorists informing them of when the school zone speed limit is in effect. Improved motorist compliance to the school zone speed limit can improve pedestrian crossing safety. These improvements will enhance the safety of students walking and bicycling to and from school and crossing at these locations, and encourage students to walk and bike to school rather than being driven to school.

The current Binghampton Streetscape Project Phase 1 funds sidewalk improvements, ADA ramps, bulbouts, and crosswalks along that portion of SR 507 located within City of Rainier corporate limits between Minnesota Street N and Dakota Avenue N. The project includes funds for two pairs of solar powered pedestrian activated flashing beacons for the Dakota Avenue and Minnesota Street crosswalks. Since both the Dakota Avenue and Minnesota Street crosswalks are used by pedestrians and students to access the high school and middle school complex and sport fields directly south of SR 507, the city is requesting additional TAP grant funds to upgrade the crosswalk signage to solar powered pedestrian activated LED rapid flashing units.

The Yelm-Tenino Trail is an important east-west non-motorized corridor that connects people from the cities of Yelm, Rainier, and Tenino and the south county to the rest of the regional trail network via the Chehalis Western Trail. The Town of Bucoda and the City of Tenino’s western city limits lack safe bicycle and pedestrian facilities to this useful corridor. Expanding the trail corridor to these unserved communities will increase transportation and recreation opportunities for thousands of additional residents. A feasibility study examining potential trail connections to these locations will lay the ground work for future expansion of the Yelm-Tenino Trail. This proposal will identify future projects that will: 1) increase safety for cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers alike; 2) connect Bucoda to the regional trail network; and 3) provide an alternate route into/out of Bucoda in the event of an emergency.

The project will improve safety for students and pedestrians along 100th Way Southeast and Grove Road near Fort Stevens Elementary. The existing roadway offers no protection from vehicles passing by or turning movements. There is a gap in the sidewalk on the north and south sides of 100th Way Southeast directly in front of the school and to the east and west respectively. This project will tie into the existing sidewalk and provide ADA compliant walkways along the roadways to eliminate the gaps.
