City adjusts traffic signal timing at key intersections

January 24, 2012

By Staff

The city is updating timing at traffic signals at key intersections in order to adjust the transportation system.

City engineering staffers collected traffic counts and updated weekday and weekend signal-timing plans for the signals along East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast and Front Street North from Gilman Boulevard to Southeast 51st Street. The city also updated signal-timing plans for the corridors along state Route 900, Northwest Sammamish Road and Southeast 56th Street.

Plans called for officials to implement the plans last week, and to monitor and adjust the signal-timing plans as needed in the weeks ahead.

    Is this why it takes almost five minutes for the early-morning Metro buses (200, 214, 269) to turn left from northbound Front Street onto Gilman?

    I can understand prioritizing the traffic that’s heading for I-90. But not everyone is going there, and I think they’ve gone way overboard in the wrong direction.

Got something to say?
