Dear Seattle City Councilmembers and SDOT staff,
Please support Option A for the intersection of 15th and Columbian.
The 15th and Columbian Neighborhood Street Fund project's primary goal is to make it safe for ACA Mercer Middle School students to cross the street and help encourage them to do so by providing an intersection that has crosswalks where they need them and transit access where it works best.
SDOT's original proposal (now referred to as Option A), is the safest design and provides the most options and best access to transit for local students.
We encourage the City, Council-members, and Mayor to support the safest option for people who are walking and not to sacrifice safety for the benefit of people driving who will have an alternative signalized protected left turn just two blocks north of this intersection.
We can't wait for Vision Zero. Please help make sure this project is completed before another student is injured here.
