West Seattle Bridge burnout: Light replacement Wednesday

(Monday night video view of the western half of the high rise, with the most burned-out bulbs)
Update on the dangerous problem so many have been asking about, numerous burned-out streetlights on The Bridge: Word of the Wednesday work comes from Seattle City Light via City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen‘s office: They’ll “replace bulbs” on the high bridge this Wednesday, using three crews to minimize how much time they’ll have to spend on The Bridge. They’re still working on a timetable for replacing burned-out lights on the Spokane Street Viaduct section.

    YEA! This will really help, now if they could get the intersections that have burned out lights fixed…..

    Delridge between Thistle & Henderson is pretty dark and dangerous. Those street lights have been out for a long time.

    I called the City the other day (206.684.7056) to report the Delridge outages, but nothing has happened. I’m tired of walking home from the 120 in the dark. I watched a pedestrian almost get hit last night trying to cross Delridge. What will it take to get the City to respond? Do I need to report each individual light online? http://www.seattle.gov/light/streetlight/form.asp

    You would think the City would have at least ONE PERSON whose job it was to drive around and note outages and schedule crews. I am unemployed, *I* would do it if they would let me. So annoying this little stuff falls thru the cracks.

    yay! that was on my mind. glad to know other people thought it was dangerous especially since the lane markers are disappearing.

    How about replacing the lights below the overhead signs as well? If it is foggy or just plain really dark, and you don’t know the streets, the overhead signs are of no use and it is easy to get lost.

Sorry, comment time is over.
