West Seattle traffic alert: 26th/Roxbury signal trouble

2:56 PM: Before long we’re going to have to give SW Roxbury its own coverage category. New problem right now – thanks to multiple tipsters for letting us know about the traffic signal at 26th and Roxbury malfunctioning because the truck in the photo (shared by Cyndi) hit the control box. We have a ground crew en route to check on the situation.

4:41 PM UPDATE: The truck was able to leave without a tow, but the signal box was mangled, as you can see in our photo above. We’ll be going by again shortly to check if the signal’s working yet.

    It’s like Roxbury is jealous of the Battery Street Tunnel.

    why oh why do they come west on Roxbury only to try to make that corner. There is other ways to Westwood.

    Thank you, trucker. Great driving skills.

    Easy on him Genesee Hill, he worked hard to hone those skills.
    Or, did he hardly work to hone those skills?

    I’m surprised he didn’t take out the hydrant too.

    Clearly, no issues at that intersection at ALL…

Sorry, comment time is over.
