FOLLOWUP: West Marginal/Highland Park Way intersection work to start this weekend

Part of the West Seattle Bridge update/discussion during City Councilmember Lisa Herbold‘s Town Hall earlier tonight was a recap of the 6 changes planned/proposed for West Marginal Way. SDOT announced tonight that a key part of those changes – restriping part of the West Marginal/Highland Park Way intersection, as shown below (from our Sept. 18th story) – will start this Sunday (October 4th).

Specifics on work hours and traffic impacts will be out before the weekend.

    The plan noted was submitted to SDoT in June by an outside expert.  SDoT tweaked it by relocating the bus stop.

      I’ve read several comments on different articles on this blog describing a plan very similar to this.  Pretty sure it was you  who came up with this.

    I’d like to know if the new stop design will restrict flow on west bound HP Way when buses are present?    Also curious to know if SDOT considered moving the stop to the east, outside of traffic in the large right of way created by the intersection of HP Way and Michigan St (dead ended).    The space looks flat and currently not used.

    Prayers finally answered, but I sure hope NONE of this Construction work will be performed between the hours of 7am to 7pm. Else traffic misery will turn into traffic mayhem.

    Finally!  The speed with which they implemented changes to the low bridge 5-way intersection in April one month after the complete WS Bridge closure only makes we wonder: “What took you so long?”  As written in a SDOT Blog Post on April 22, 2020 (which seems like ages ago) “Our traffic engineers are evaluating intersections and arterial roads to determine where improvements are needed to support people and businesses in West Seattle during the bridge closure.”

Sorry, comment time is over.
