Chelan 5-way changes this summer

We received this welcome message today from Emily Ehlers at SDOT!

150616 5-way
Thank you again for participating in last year’s design workshop to help improve the West Seattle five-way intersection (Chelan, Delridge, W Marginal, Spokane, POS T5 access road).  We generated a lot of great ideas and enthusiasm. Your hard work has paid off!  This summer, SDOT will be completing the short-term recommendations developed at the workshop. Safety improvements include pavement markings to increase bicycle predictability, bicycle ramps to minimize potential conflicts, and a crossing beacon to increase the visibility of people crossing the street. See the graphic below for additional details.

BNSF workers installing new train crossing signal on the “porkchop island” where we wait to cross going eastbound – the second time it was wiped out by an errant driver in one year at this confusing intersection.
