From SDOT, a road-work alert for a busy intersection on the east edge of The Triangle:

Pedestrian improvements are coming to the intersection of 35th Avenue SW and SW Alaskan Street. Beginning tomorrow, September 11, SDOT paving crews will begin installing upgraded curb ramps. The crews will work on one corner at a time, closing the curb lanes at the corner and providing a sidewalk detour. The crews will work from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and plan to complete the work by September 21. SDOT will also install an upgraded pedestrian signal push button for crossing 35th Avenue SW at this location for people who are visually impaired.

  1. Crazy, I email DOT about this exact intersection this morning, except I want to see them remove ped ‘push to walk’ buttons and put the crosswalk light on light timing. Just ad the talking queues for visually-impaired and we’re all set!
