    Olson Pl SW and Myers Way S intersection is a mess with a really short green light for those coming down Olson Pl. It takes 10 minutes to travel from 5th Ave SW & Roxbury to pass through this intersection about 7:40 to 8:00 when I pass through! SDOT has made a terrible mistake in shortening the green light for those on Olson Pl SW. My route is through South Park and now I am taking a detour through Top Hat so I can fly down Myers Way! There is no obstruction at that intersection or on the ramp to 509  – just the darn short green light.  I already wrote 2 requests to Report a Problem for SDOT but I will try the phone # WSB mentioned. And I will also e-mail them –

      Please do. I reported it as well. The whole thing is a disaster.

    is that why the 113 was operating 50 minutes  late?   Trying to get through that intersection?

Sorry, comment time is over.
