    Looks like SDOT’s 25 mph Speed limit is really working out with all these accidents lately

      Yes, let’s blame SDOT for the actions and consequences of irresponsible drivers. Maybe people should stop running red lights and put their phones down?

    Stay safe out there West Seattle. Hope the two people get better soon, it was a nasty wreck.

    Hope the Rapid Ride for Delridge has a detour plan if Delridge is impassable for the bus. Maybe 16th will be used for a detour route? The bus sure can’t utilize the side streets running parallel to Delridge .

      The 120, which will become the H runs through there and detoured just fine for this.

    The new painted lane lines just north of Holden by Home Depot are VERY confusing and illogical. I’ve already seen a few close calls there.

      The sudden merge after Orchard when heading south is making a lot of close calls, and the mile-long right only heading north between Holden and Orchard is super strange, seems like it would be the straight-through lane. Don’t really understand that decision.

Sorry, comment time is over.
