Crash closes Pigeon Point stairway

Thanks to Jack for tweeting the photo. The 19th SW/SW Charlestown stairway (map) is taped off after an overnight crash. We heard a collision call there in the very early morning hours but no details; Pigeon Point resident Pete tells us the driver “missed the dead-end sgns and headed down the stairs toward Marginal Way; police had to have a tow truck pull it back up the stairs.” It’s been reported to SDOT for repairs.

    The Atlas Place stairway was lightly cleared for soil samples a few years back.  Did soil sampling yield any info related to if the stairway would be opened again?

    A motorist trying to bypass the congestion at the 5 way intersection, via an alternative route. This route choice was not successfull.

      At 1 am or so in the morning (I didn’t note the clock time and though SFD was summoned, it doesn’t show on their log)? Not likely. To get to that part of Pigeon Point unintentionally, you have to be REALLY lost.

    Cool, the war on pedestrians continues.

    Hey WSB, what’s the scoop on this event?  Inquiring minds on Pigeon Point and Puget Ridge are curious.  There’s video of the incident and police reports filed.  We’d love to know the ensuing details.  Thanks!

Sorry, comment time is over.
