ROAD WORK AHEAD: Roxbury/Olson project starting soon

That map from SDOT shows where work is expected to start soon for pedestrian improvements at Roxbury/Olson [map], which have been in the works for at least three years. The city has sent notices to people in the area, but it’s a busy corridor, so many others who use it need to know too. From the SDOT advisory:

This work will include:

-A new pedestrian signal on the northwest side of the intersection
-Shifting the crosswalks across SW Roxbury St so they’re better aligned
-Curb bulbs that extend the sidewalk corners for people walking on the south side of the intersection
-Curb ramps for improved ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessibility

Once work begins, it is expected to last six months, SDOT says, with work hours primarily 9 am-3 pm on weekdays. They’ll have flaggers to help with lane closures. Here’s the full construction notice.

    Maybe wait until the bridge to 99 ramp work is finished. Please

      There’s never a convenient time for traffic work. It’s best to just get it all done asap.

    Is it just me or does 6 months seem like a very long time to construct 4 new crosswalks and pour some ADA ramps?

      I guess you never did any road construction while keeping the road open! Let’s be cautious and keep workers safe and YAY for installing a light for pedestrians!

    Am I looking at things wrong or is it possible to be at the intersection of Roxbury and Roxbury?A bit confusing if so.

    Maybe its one of those new style of crosswalk lights, like they installed on Ambaum.

Sorry, comment time is over.
