Junction parking plan: 2-hour signs going up today

January 28, 2010 at 3:06 pm | In Junction parking review, Transportation, West Seattle news | 6 Comments

From WSB photojournalist Christopher Boffoli: SDOT crews are putting up 2-hour signs along a stretch of 41st SW this afternoon – part of the Junction parking plan recently finalized, almost two years after first word of the city review. (You’ll recall, the review resulted in a decision for NO pay stations, and NO “restricted parking zones” – just some new 2-hour-zone signage; see the map in our most recent story.) ADDED 6:26 PM: In e-mail this evening, SDOT project manager Dante Taylor confirms the sign installation and included a reminder that there will be a meeting later this year open to anyone who wants to hear and talk about how the changes are working.


  1. This sucks!! I live one block off of California and see people all day long park on the first street that does not have 2 hour parking.

  2. Thanks to WSB reader (and talented graphic design guru) Kim Baruffi for the tip that the signs were going in!
    Willy: SDOT has said that they will be checking back with the community in six months to seek feedback on how these signs are working for the neighborhood. So if your fears are realized, all hope is not lost. There will be a chance to communicate with the City later.

  4. When is the street light on 41st by Alaska corner going to be turned on? It was installed months ago when they finished the building. Any word?

  5. Parking parasites! Why doesn’t DOT fix some of the potholes on Delridge for God’s sake? And why do we pay a crew of 4 to fix a pothole?

  6. In regards to the street lights, you can email Vicki at vicki.marsten@seattle.gov to help get them turned on – I live on 41st and have been bugging her for months.
