New High Point stoplights: The blinking begins


For anyone who said they wouldn’t believe it till they saw it – there you go – as of a little while ago, the light at High Point’s long-closed Lanham/Morgan intersection (by Commons Park and the new Bridge Park senior-living community) is in its “blinking” test phase, and by all accounts, that means the intersection will be open within a week or so. Not far away, minutes after we took the Lanham/Morgan photo, we also spotted SDOT getting ready to do the same thing with the upgraded light at 35th/Raymond:

    And in other news, Porcine Aviation observed amid low clouds in SW Seattle…

    What a difference 6 years makes.

    Now I can stop cutting through the Bridge Park parking lot.

    I visit the Highpoint Library a few times a week and was so glad to see a light being put in…’s scary trying to turn left to 35th from that intersection with people going 40+ mph both ways. Hopefully next, a red light camera at 35th & Morgan.

    A red light camera? I hope you’re joking. If there’s something we don’t need — it’s any 1984 red light cameras around there! Give me a break!

    There are two red-light cameras in the works for West Seattle but that’s not one of the intersections listed. Thanks for the reminder, I need to check on how the plans for installing them are going.

    A red light camera at 35th and Morgan would be fabulous! I can’t tell you how many near misses I have seen in the last seven years…too scary when people come down the hill there just gun it through the red light. Yikes! Please give us a camera!

    So YOU (Ken) are the reason they put up their special signage that says NOT A THRU STREET – on both sides of the driveway facing Morgan.

Sorry, comment time is over.
