FOLLOWUP: SDOT distributing 35th SW Phase 2 notices in SW Juneau area today

SDOT‘s updated plan for the 35th SW/SW Juneau intersection, as part of the 35th SW Safety Project‘s Phase 2, was featured in our Morgan Community Association quarterly-meeting report last week – including the draft version of a notice for businesses/residents in the area. Today, SDOT’s Dawn Schellenberg tells us, that notice is being circulated. Here’s the final version (PDF). As the notice says, the work at 35th/Juneau will start soon, and will include turn restrictions as well as parking removal; while the notice doesn’t list a number, we asked SDOT’s Jim Curtin at the MoCA meeting, and he replied it would be at least 20 spaces, described as little-used. As for the rest of 35th SW Phase 2, here’s what we first reported back in April.

    this was not well thought out at all.  By restricting to right turn only from Juneau to 35th, you are forcing all of the traffic that uses Juneau as a thoroughfare from Fauntleroy to 35th to use 36th, 37th, 38th to get from Juneau to Raymond where they can take the left on 35th. All three streets have cars parked up both sides – they are effectively one lane.  Just another ill conceived, poorly planned, not researched move by SDOT.  What’s next – speed bumps of course, because SDOT are inept. Bumps on 36th, 37th, 38th will be needed to curtail the speeding they are about to create on those side streets.  Seriously, that is how they will handle this, it’s what they did in Morgan Junction, and all over West Seattle where they screwed up.  Forget putting up a signal asked for by residents who know the area.  Nah – that would be stupid to actually do the thing people want and will work.  Don’t actually DO anything useful, just paint some stuff, toss up some signs, tell people they can’t park, and it’ll all work itself out.  “SDOT – we phone it in so we can go home early!”

Sorry, comment time is over.
