TRAFFIC ALERT: Sylvan Way work Sunday

SDOT crews will be back on Sylvan Way this Sunday, cutting more trees and other vegetation to improve visibility. The work is planned for 9 am to 4 pm and will include lane reductions; uniformed officers wiil be there to direct traffic. Meantime, SDOT has reiterated that radar-equipped speed-limit signs are on order – as first reported here last week – with four planned, to try to slow down speeders on the increasingly popular route for bridge-detour traffic.

    Hopefully the radar signs either issue automated speeding tickets — OR — deploy spike strips to disable vehicle drivers that are breaking the law. Either is fine with me.

    More People and cars are speeding on Sylvan, California(south of morgan), Thistle, Barton/wildwood too as they head east to roxbury or highland Park because of bridge closure. I hope sdot puts up more than 4 speed limit radar signs along other residential streets that have turned into freeways.

    I hope the Sylvan Way electronic speed signs also have cameras that will issue tickets. Like the one at the stop light on 35th/Thistle. Drivers are in such a rush that they will continue to speed up and down Sylvan Way. Flashing slow down signs don’t deter in many cases. Tickets will make everyone slow down. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
