UPDATE: Tree down on West Marginal Way SW

1:47 PM: Thanks for the tip – just heard a dispatch on this, too. A tree has fallen on the southbound lanes of West Marginal Way SW in the 4800 block, described by our tipster as “right before you get to the Alaska Marine Lines complex.” Police are on scene and SDOT is being sent. No damage or injuries reported.

3:31 PM: No confirmation on whether it’s cleared but the video camera at West Marginal/Highland Park Way shows traffic is coming through from that area.

    I’m grateful someone called this in. I was the person the branch fell directly in front of and grateful I wasn’t driving any faster or it would have ended up in my windshield. I had leaves all over my car but thankfully no branch. I was shaken and stopped for a few moments to collect myself, and it never even occurred to me to call that in.

      This is exactly what I fear driving that stretch. I’m glad you’re ok. How terrifying.

    Is traffic being alternated thru there, or getting by at all?

    No damage or injuries reported….. YETBoth sides of that trash strewn roadway desperately need to be cleaned,  trimmed and cut back. IS SDOT  waiting  until someone is killed to step up?

Sorry, comment time is over.
