UPDATE: 35th/Morgan crash

8:31 PM: Avoid 35th/Morgan for a while – three of the four sides of the intersection are reported blocked because of a 2-car crash. Dispatch told officers that witnesses who called it in said one vehicle was speeding and hit the other. No serious injuries are reported, but they’ll have to tow the vehicles and clean up a reported fluid spill before the intersection can reopen.

8:57 PM: Police just told dispatch that 35th/Morgan has reopened.

    35th really needs to be reduced to 1 lane over its entire length.  I live on the street and the amount of people doing 50-70mph is ridiculous.  I watch 2x a week people blow right through the red light when I’m crossing with my dog. There’s no reason it should be 2 lanes for 1.5 miles. It’s one lane everywhere else.

      I dont agree with a lane reduction because that is not addressing the issue of speeding etc. It will just make things worse.

      It’s one lane by my house and there are SO MANY wrecks! Also around Holden we see lots of people passing in the double yellow turn lane going really fast way too often. Frustrated people driving recklessly. One lane on THE major arterial is not the way to go IMHO. SDOT said they would do the southern half and pause to study the effects before the north half then never did it. Did they ever publish any data on that?

      There is a reason SDOT abandoned the idea of channelizing all of 35th.  After they channelized the first stretch they realized their mistake and did not proceed with the whole stretch.  What evidence suggests last night’s collision would have been prevented by road channelization?

Sorry, comment time is over.
