Concerned about SW Roxbury Street? SDOT wants to hear your thoughts
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is launching a collaborative process to review roadway conditions along SW Roxbury Street in the White Center area.
“As safety is our number one priority, we are committed to improving safety for all users of the transportation system by reducing speeding and the number of collisions on our streets,” reads an announcement.
SDOT says they will work with the community to consider changes to these streets in an effort to bring down speeds and make the roadway safer for students, neighbors and all roadway users.
“Together we will determine the specific nature and design elements of these changes through the process described below. New safety measures to be considered through this project may include, but not be limited to, the following: signage improvements, arterial traffic calming, channelization changes, traffic signal modifications, pavement repair, and pedestrian and bicycle safety enhancements.”
Since collision data tells us that the majority of collisions are caused by behavioral issues such as speeding, distraction, and impairment (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs), we will pair roadway modifications with new enforcement strategies and area-specific educational outreach.
