Walk It Out: New Pedestrian Crossing Signal @ Terry Ave N and Denny Way

This morning wayfarers were pleasantly surprised during their morning commute across Terry Ave N and Denny Way.

The object of their morning bliss? A brand new crossing signal!

SDOT traffic engineers flipped the switch on the signal this morning around 5:45 am, and heard lots of praises from early morning runners, coffee drinkers and Seattle Times staffers, whose offices are adjacent to the intersection. SDOT will keep a close watch out for possible congestion given the close proximity to nearby signal intersection at Westlake Ave N and Denny Way, making adjustments as needed. What a difference seven seconds makes!Hand pushing ped signal button
