ROAD WORK: SW 106th/107th reconfiguration project next week

(Also published on partner site West Seattle Blog)

If you use SW 106th/107th between White Center, North Shorewood, and West Seattle, you might have seen the signboard for road work coming up next week. We did, so we asked King County Roads for details; here’s what we just received from spokesperson Brent Champaco:

We are taking the road from two lanes to a three-lane configuration that will feature:

· Left –turn lanes at 26th Avenue SW
· Two-way, left-turn lanes around 25th Avenue SW
· Striped median in the S-curves between 22nd and 25th Avenues SW
· Two-way, left-turn lane between 17th and 22nd Avenues SW

The restriping work is scheduled to last 3-5 days, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. All lanes of traffic will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m., and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. At other times, at least one lane will remain open with flaggers directing traffic. No parking will be allowed along this part of the road during the project.

If you live/work near that stretch, you’ve probably already seen this flyer (or a similar door-hanger card) as part of the county’s outreach work.

    Did you find an unemployed Seattle traffic engineer to do this completely unnecessary restriping? In 15 years I have not seen one accident here, or anything to warrant spending any money redoing what has worked very well so far. Is King Co.bored and has too much money to spend to do so wisely?

  2. I live on 22nd and have nearly been rear-ended multiple times while turning left from 107th. The intersection at 26th was also quite dangerous. I appreciate the county addressing the issue. It was a nice surprise.
