Issue: Permanent Sign (Add or Modify)

Details of request: Unsafe conditions for bicyclists in 9th Ave westbound bike lane. Because traffic westbound on 9th Ave dead ends at 3rd St SE and must turn right. Most motorists assume the adjacent bike lane ends. Further, in the westbound 9th Ave direction, the 4th St SE intersection had a separate bike lane traffic light. The intersection of 9th Ave and 3rd St SE does not have a matching traffic light to 4th St SE. In succession westbound, this is a confusing recipe for danger. I recommend adding more clear signage, barriers or ideally a matching traffic signal. I had had a. Invest of ear misses but was involved in a collision with an SUV turning right from 9th Avenue onto 3rd St SE and the motorist's explanation was that she thought that all traffic turned right because of the dead end sign. Her explanation makes sense from a motorist's perspective however is misaligned with how the City has laid out the bike lanes. Please help.

Specific location details: Corner of 9th Ave SE and 3rd St SE where traffic dead ends and turns right but bike lane carries on north side of road past Municipal Building underground parking entrance.
