About that flashing red light at NE 95th St.

March 17th, 2016 by Mike

For those who’ve been wondering about the flashing red light at Roosevelt Way Northeast and Northeast 95th Street:

“The wind storm caused an outage and the controller at this intersection had a difficult time restoring from the loss of power. We ended up having to replace the controller yesterday in the afternoon,” the Seattle transportation department reports this morning.

For those who haven’t, the pedestrian-activated red light at that intersection suddenly turned on as a flashing red light after this weekend’s windstorm.

Traditionally that makes it a four-way stop, except that the lights only face north and south on Roosevelt. Which created some confusion.
