The city has been awarded a $7,400 grant for installing two school speed zone flashing beacons near Mountlake Terrace Elementary School.
Funded by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, the solar powered beacons will be installed on 52nd Avenue West for southbound traffic and on 220th Street SW for eastbound traffic. “Speed Limit 20” signs and “when flashing” placards will flash in coordination with the arrival and departure times of the elementary students.
Mountlake Terrace Elementary School will have an assembly to provide traffic and crosswalk safety information. The City of Mountlake Terrace Police Department will assist with the presentation and provide targeted enforcement for this school zone after the installation is complete. Installation by the city’s Public Works Department is scheduled for completion before the end of April.
