WARD                     TRAFFIC WARNING SIGNS AND/OR SIGNALS:

 

8                     East 75th Street is a minor collector roadway with significantly higher traffic volumes

than South Ellis Avenue, a local roadway. Stop signs on streets with higher volumes such as East 75th Street tend to increase rear-end crashes, increase congestion, and create a false sense of security for pedestrians that every vehicle will stop. Therefore, CDOT does not recommend an All-Way Stop at this intersection (19-01175313) [Or2019-165]

13                     South Oak Park Avenue and West 61st Street are both local roadways forming a T-

intersection with 61st Street terminating at Oak Park Avenue. Based on the location of an existing driveway on the west side of Oak Park Avenue at 61st Street, a stop sign for southbound traffic would need to be placed approximately 50 feet from the cross street. Stop signs placed a large distance from the cross street can have sight line issues, complicate determining who has the right-of-way, and overall be confusing to drivers. Therefore, CDOT does not recommend an All-Way Stop Sign at this intersection - (19-01069317) [Or2019-118]

 

21                     South Lowe Avenue and West 87th Street; Stop Sign, Stopping All Approaches. Not

Recommended. West 87th Street is a principal arterial with significantly higher traffic volumes than S. Lowe Avenue, a local roadway. Stop signs on streets with higher ' volumes such as W. 87th Street tend to increase rear-end crashes, increase congestion, and create a false sense of security for pedestrians that every vehicle will stop. Therefore, CDOT does not recommend an all-way stop at this intersection. -- (19-01397477) [Or2019-189]

 

34                     South Genoa Avenue and West 98th Place; All Way Stop Sign, Stopping All

Approaches - (18-03172406) [Or2018-583]

 

 

 

WARD MISCELLANEOUS:

 

3                     East 21st Street (south side) from South Indiana Avenue to South Prairie Avenue; No

Bus Idling on East 21st Street, Not Recommend. This location Falls Within A No Parking, No Stopping, No Standing Zone, -- (19-01069194) [Or2019-114]

Walter Burnett, Jr. Chairman,
