Pilkington/Jean Rd Intersection Improvements
Based on intersection analysis done throughout the city in late 2017, the City has identified the Jean and Pilkington Road intersection as operationally sub-standard. The City recently hired a consultant team to evaluate potential solutions for this intersection. This intersection improvement project is identified as an important component in the City’s Transportation System Plan (TSP) and is funded under the current Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).
The consultants were asked to compare a traffic signal versus roundabout and develop conceptual level plans and cost estimate for each. The comparison showed that while both alternatives would initially cost about the same, the impact of each alternative was quite different. Specifically, the area or footprint needed for a roundabout is greater than what is needed for a traditional signal installation.
After careful evaluation, the Engineering Department is recommending a signal for the Jean and Pilkington intersection to improve transporation capacity, efficiency, and safety. A signal will address sub-standard performance and improve pedestrian safety. It also keeps with the current feel of the neighborhood by minimizing impacts to adjacent properties.
Improvements include recontruction of each of the four approaches for 150 ft., including curb and gutter, 6 ft. bike lanes, 6 ft. sidewalks and ADA ramps at each corner.
This project was delayed for sometime due to franchise utility relocation needs.
During the month of March, PGE is expected to be on site relocating several utility poles near the intersection of Jean and Pilkington. Work is expected to take place at night between 8 p.m. - 6 a.m. Any utility shutoffs will be coordinated with customers through PGE.

Century West has started the Evaluation process.
In the month of November, work crews will begin collecting data for the project.
Once the evaluation has been completed, the City will send out invitations to an Open House to present the findings.
The Open House is tentatively scheduled for the end of January, 2020.
