There are many troublesome intersections in Edmonds, but one soon will be getting relief: Main Street and Ninth Avenue.

The existing intersection is stop-controlled for all four approaches, and each approach has a 22-foot-wide travel lane. The intersection gets long queues at various times of day, and it’s only going to get worse.

The proposed improvements include the installation of a mini-roundabout or traffic signal. But funding hasn’t yet been secured to start the design phase of that.

So in the meantime, a striping project will improve intersection safety and help reduce intersection delay with the addition of right-turn lanes on all approaches.

For the eastbound part, this addition will require the removal of 90 feet of marked parking spots. The other lane will become a left-through lane on all approaches.

The size of the stop signs also will be bigger.

This project is scheduled to be completed by Public Works crews by the end of October, depending on the weather.

The two residents on the southwest corner of the intersection where parking is being removed have been notified, and both were supportive, the City said.
