AVALON/35TH: No more intersection closures expected

This week’s Avalon/35th repaving-and-more project update has a big headline: No third closure of that intersection expected after all. From SDOT:

Thank you for your patience during our intersection closure at 35th Ave SW and SW Avalon Way! Work during the closure was successful and we were able to open the intersection early! At this time, we do not expect to have a third intersection closure and are working on remaining intersection work during typical work hours.

As concrete paving continues in the same sections of the corridor, you may not hear from us as often. We will still be sure to let you know if things change and will reach out as work continues in new locations. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact us at: AvalonPaving@seattle.gov; 206-900-8734

    Can somebody please fix what will be installed on the intersection of SW Avalon Way and SW Genesee St.  They have marked to paint a left turn lane (when traveling north/northeast on SW Avalon Way) at the traffic light.  There is rarely any traffic that turns left there.  You mostly have cars that go straight or turn right to head east on SW Genesee St.  There apparently was no study done to show frequency and direction of traffic.  Just typical SDOT mindlessly doing things.  This will make traffic way worse, forever, on Avalon.

    I don’t understand why, but the temporary markings do not reflect what’s in the final plan. If you look at page 5 of this document https://tinyurl.com/y3m4gzpd, you’ll see that it has a separate lane for right turns at Genesee, and no left turns allowed.

Sorry, comment time is over.
