Sign the petition to support NE 125th changes

We reported last week that, after a delayed start, opposition to changes to NE 125th St has started back up. There was a petition drive, and signs placed on the road urge drivers to call the mayor’s office to voice their opposition. SDOT has recommended the changes, and the project is waiting on a decision from Mayor McGinn.

Cascade has responded with a petition of its own, and it already has hundreds of signatures after only a short period of time online. Voice your support for the project and for safer streets by signing on.

See our previous post to see SDOT’s traffic study results.

From Cascade:

NE 125th was chosen for this kind of project because too many drivers speed at over 40 mph – a deadly speed for the most vulnerable users of the road. More than half of collisions cause injuries on this stretch of road for drivers, passengers and bystanders. This is far higher than for most streets in the city. SDOT made the decision to move forward after careful study, and they will continue to collect data on the effectiveness of this safety project.Unfortunately, a group of well-meaning but misinformed people is pressuring our elected leaders to cancel this project. That is why it is so important to show our support for a safer street.
