Fauntleroy/Dawson signal now in full operation


Thanks to Sue for the tip – after a round of testing this morning, following a few days in yellow-flashing mode, the new Fauntleroy/Dawson pedestrian signal is now in operation – just five weeks after the city told neighbors the construction schedule was being moved up in a big way (original WSB coverage here).

    You know, I knew this intersection had a lot of foot traffic (which is why I was one of the people fighting for this light), but I’ll admit that in the day that it’s been in operation now, I’m blown away by how many times a day – even into the night – that someone is pushing the button to cross! I can see the light/intersection from my livingroom window so it’s good to see that this light really was needed.
    I did just write to the woman at SDOT about what they plan to do about replacing the stop sign on Dawson (that is now a street-level temporary one) – hopefully I’ll get an answer soon and a “real” stop sign even sooner!

    In about 20 minutes I’ll be trying this light out for my first time. I’ll have to check back with how many of the regular Fauntleroy commuters put their ABS to the test on their 1st commute home with the light functioning!

Sorry, comment time is over.
