The intersection of SW 92nd Avenue and SW Martha Street is a busy location in Tigard. Many pedestrians cross SW 92nd Avenue at this particular intersection and adding a marked crosswalk would benefit the entire community.

This intersection connects a school and a neighborhood, and creates issues for people who walk and drive in this area. Students cross the street here before and after school while other community members use this intersection to go to football games, other sports events, to use the school’s track, fields, and tennis courts, to walk to the pool, and other times throughout the year. Tigard High School’s new parking lot has an entrance at this intersection which has also contributed to recent issues.

Adding a crosswalk here would help Tigard High students and other community members stay safe. It would help increase visibility and drivers’ awareness that people cross the street here. Pedestrians would have a specific location where they could cross the street and drivers could more easily know where people will be. It could help people be seen when weather conditions reduce visibility or when it is dark in the winter. People deserve to stay safe, and adding a crosswalk is a simple way to ensure safety in one area.
