Here’s what’s up in the air in The Junction

West Seattle Junction notes from above:

YEAR-ROUND LIGHTS: No, the workers in the trees along California SW in The Junction today are not trimming them – they’re installing year-round lights, West Seattle Junction Association executive director Chris Mackay tells us.

NEW BANNERS; Someday soon you’ll see another set of workers aloft in The Junction, putting up new banners to replace the faded ones that have been up for several years.

FLOWER BASKETS: Adopted one yet? Some of The Junction’s flower baskets are still awaiting adoption for this year. Individuals, businesses, organizations all welcome. Here’s how to sign up.

    Yes! The lights are a great idea.

    I welcome it, especially with the dark and gloomy winter days were have here.

    I wonder where can an individual person buy one of those flowers baskets for their own home exactly like the ones that are hung up in the junction?

      You might try contacting info [at] wsjunction [dot] org and see if they can put you in touch with where to get one.

    Hopefully this will eventually lead to lane reductions and more space for people, not cars, in the Junction.

      JortThey reduced the junction years back to one lane in each. It lasted two weeks and was reversedwhere you in the area back then there was single lane if traffic from Admiral to Morgan just another fine example of SDOT waste of tax dollarshow does hanging lights in trees translate into traffic lane adjustments?lets Don’t repeat what does not work!

    $160 for those beautiful flower pots is ridiculous. To sponsor one hanging flower basket? West Seattle has the base to keep up this tradition and we want to (including the labour to maintain). The Junction Assoc. has the power. Change the supplier or provide more incentives than plaques for $160.

    Those tree lights are a wonderful idea. Bellevue does this all along Bellevue Way between the Square shopping center buildings. It makes for a lovely night-time drive.

    How about cleaning the street in front of your biz..and those that own these about updating the ugly 1950″s look

    • Rhonda February 1, 2022 (7:57 pm)

      That 1950s look of those storefronts are what makes that area so charming and inviting.

    I hope the lights are continued all the way to Oregon.  Walking at night it feels cut off the way only half a block has the lights.  I love them.

Sorry, comment time is over.
