How can SW Roxbury change to become safer? Find out July 31st

After a campaign launched by community advocates one year ago, the city promised to make SW Roxbury safer. Wondering how? SDOT is almost ready to unveil options. It’s announced two meetings at which it plans to show “several different engineering options to improve safety for all modes.” The first one is on the West Seattle side, Thursday, July 31st, 6 pm at Southwest Branch Library. Second one is on the White Center side, Monday, August 4th, 6 pm at the Greenbridge YWCA. These meetings were promised during a round of community meetings last winter (WSB coverage here). The project’s official page is here; check out the maps linked from the left side, including this one showing speeds, volumes, and intersections with the most crashes.

    Keeping erratic drivers off of Roxbury would make it safer.

    A good start would be to clean out all of the trash that hangs out in the park.

    Hi. Just to be clear, this meeting with SDOT is about Roxbury St SW. We are in constant movement in regards to Roxhill Park and if you want to help us… we would love your help. Just shoot us an email!
