West Seattle traffic alert: Crash at 8th and Roxbury

3:55 PM: Avoid 8th/Roxbury for a while if you’re heading out – a crash is blocking at least part of the intersection. No word yet on injuries or other circumstances; we’re en route to check.

4:06 PM: Won’t be blocked for too long, per scanner – tow trucks have been called. Northbound Metro on 8th is affected for a bit, though.

4:30 PM: The tow trucks were there when our crew arrived a short time ago. One lane on Roxbury was blocked eastbound, and 8th was blocked pending removal of the cars. No injuries, we’re told.

    This is a dangerous intersection because only one of the four crossings has a left turn signal. I complained to SDOT a after a pedestrian collission at this spot and they said that the street design is working as intended and no changes were deemed, basically not enough tragedies for them to bother making changes. SDOT won’t take care of this intersection unless the community holds them accountable. Please write to SDOT and to Tom Rasmussen if you want to make this intersection safer.

    It has taken more than 8 years and losing a few lives for SDOT to take issues on 35th ave sw more seriously. So you better get your complaints in now!

Sorry, comment time is over.
