Question: I think that a stop sign should be put on the corner of Mast Blvd. and Jeremy St. Has the city considered this?
Answer (from Santee Deputy City Manager Pedro Orso-Delgado :
City of Santee traffic engineers have reviewed this location in the past and it has not meet the warrants for a stop sign, but we did get a grant for a raised median that will serve as a refuge for pedestrians.
Construction could begin late this winter. The funds are part of a Federal Grant for safe routes to school. The project came up as part of a normal review.
The median will act as a traffic calming device and we expect that speeds will reduce as the cars approach this intersection.
Two pedestrian ramps will be installed, a new raised center median will be constructed on each side of Mast and pedestrian warning signs.
See the attached PDF for details on the design of the project.
