UPDATE: 42nd/Alaska light fixed

6:21 PM: Multiple texters have reported that the 42nd/Alaska signal in The Junction is malfunctioning, flashing red at last report, and backing up traffic – remember a flashing, or dark, signal makes it an all-ways stop. If it hasn’t yet been reported to SDOT, you can call their after-hours number at 206-386-1218, as with other significant malfunctions/road hazards (206-684-ROAD during business hours).

8:30 PM: To clarify, the light was “stuck on red.” And another texter says it’s been fixed.

    That was nuts. People were honking so much it was NYC on that block. I saw people angrily talking in their rear view mirror. Holding their horns. It was ridiculous. If anyone reading this was one of those people, buy a meditation book maaaaan.

Sorry, comment time is over.
