Attention residents in the area of 3rd Street and Horizon Drive: We want your input on possible improvements for this intersection. A 2nd on-site meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 8 at 6:00 pm at Horizon & 3rd. We also offer a brief survey.
Properties on 3rd Street NE
On August 5, 2015, the City’s engineering staff held an onsite meeting regarding 3rd Street NE and the addition of bumpouts for speed control and to provide additional stormwater quality. These were generally supported by those in attendance, and we plan to recommend thesemodifications to the City Council. At the onsite meeting, there was discussion on vehicles running the stop sign at 3rd Street and Horizon Drive. The City is considering the following options to reduce vehicles from running these stop signs.
Option 1: Construct a raised intersection at 3rd Street and Horizon Drive. This proposal would
add up to one foot of grade to the intersection with sufficiently steep slopes so that vehicleswould have to move over them slowly. Drivers would, therfore, avoid running stop signs at high speed.
Option 2: Close 3rd Avenue through use of a diagonal diverter. This would create a barrier in the roadway. 3rd Avenue would dead-end south of the intersection, and traffic north of the intersection would have to turn onto Horizon Drive.
Option 3: The City may decide to leave the intersection as it is. You can see more detail about these options at the City of Fridley’s website here: Intersection Options and Photo Samples
