Thank you to Dongho Chang, SDOT Chief Traffic Engineer, for riding out to meet and look at the bike detour. He’ll ask the project to move the fence behind the sign base and electrical box for a little more room. Video sensors now detect northbound bikes to change the light, and the east-west crosswalk signal goes on a cycle without having to press button.
The Port of Seattle says it’s really tight for trucks turning into T46, so it’s really tight for us.
We’ve probably got 3 to 4 weeks before the permanent path is finished, and then will not have to cross the road. The path will have a west side option for those going south or using sidewalk to go north, and an east side option for those using the northbound bike lane or turning north from S Atlantic St.
