We are thrilled to welcome Michael Hendrix, "Traffic Mike," at our Thursday April 3rd Seattle Neighborhood Greenways Meetup, held at the Capitol Hill Library. Mike Hendrix has been working on designing neighborhood greenways and other bike facilities for over 10 years. Some of the work Mike has worked on has been sidewalk design and construction throughout Seattle including the 30th Ave NE sidewalk in the U District which, in addition to helping pedestrians get around, also reduced vehicle speeds by 4 mph. Mike was in charge of SDOT's neighborhood traffic section for a bit and brought speed humps to 42nd Ave NE and chicanes to NE 143rd St. Also, Mike has just finished a study on two signals that SDOT has installed for a proposed greenway along Fremont Ave N. He will share his results with us before presenting this to the Institute of Transportation Engineers District 6 Annual Meeting.
Mike is a registered Professional Engineer in both Washington State and Arizona and a certified Professional Traffic Operations Engineer. He has been on committees for pedestrian safety including school zones and crosswalks for the Institute of Transportation Engineers. He has also conducted research on bike facilities, some of which will be included in the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide's new chapter on Neighborhood Greenways.
