Speed Calming Construction
Construction alert. Beginning on Monday, April 14, the City of Maple Valley will have a contractor (Asphalt Patch Systems, Inc) out installing speed calming measures in our neighborhood.
The most recent plans call for three speed humps, a raised crosswalk, and painted crosswalk markings. The speed humps will be at the north end of Maple Ridge Way, and two on Maple Ridge Drive: one just west of (downhill from) 245th Ave and one east of (uphill from) 2467th Ct. The intersection of Maple Ridge Way and Maple Ridge Drive (at the tube slide park) will have all four crossings painted and one will be a raised cross walk.
You can see the latest plan here. Note that one speed hump has moved from the original plan and that is noted on the map with a blue arrow.
Thank you to all those who have kept this issue before the City, to those who pushed for action, and all the folks who supported petitions and supported speakers at City Council meetings. This was truly a neighborhood affair!

Speed Study update/fact sheet
Maple Woods Homeowners:
As some of you may know, several homeowners and the board of directors have been working with the City of Maple Valley to address the ongoing speeding problem we have in our neighborhood. After three speed studies have shown that we have a significant speed problem, it’s time to act to protect the safety of the children of our neighborhood. The city has chosen to poll the residents of both Maple Woods and Maple Ridge Highlands to determine homeowner support for the proposed traffic calming measures on Maple Ridge Drive and Maple Ridge Way.
Please read the Speed Study Fact Sheet from the City of Maple Valley. Over the next few weeks, please expect a knock at your door to collect a signature of either approval or disapproval of the proposed traffic calming measures. It is very important that we get as many homeowners as possible to weigh in on the matter.

We'll be asking for City Council to direct City Staff to help us implement a solution.

Your presence for just 10 minutes would help to demonstrate that there are many of us who care about this issue. Please come and show your support!
The question isn't IF we have a speeding problem on our streets, the question is why more is not being done by the City of Maple Valley to mitigate the problem.
