Another crash at West Seattle’s most-dangerous intersection; pavement work this weekend

Looks like nobody was hurt, and the wrecked car is about to be towed away, but we’re making note of another crash we just passed at what statistics show as the intersection with the most crashes in West Seattle – Roxbury/Olson, at the east end of Roxbury, a car went off the road, into/by the rail. Police have the northbound/eastbound turn lane blocked on Olson, but probably not for much longer. SDOT’s Roxbury safety project remains a work in progress, with improvements promised by summer’s end – and in fact, though we don’t know if traction had anything to do with this, this is the area where pavement work to improve it is scheduled for this weekend.

    Time to put Roxbury on a road diet. So many problems all the way to 35th.

    It’s not that bad, I’ve only crashed there once.

    Highland Parkway & Holden has GOT to be close. There’s fresh ashes from road flares just about every week

    Yeah I’m not surprised it’s this intersection, but if you had asked me three days ago I would have guessed that one too PW.

Sorry, comment time is over.
