James St. Clair was the latest in a long and sad list of pedestrian and bicycle fatalities along 35th Ave SW. Seattle Neighborhood Greenways led a Memorial Walk and Solutions Meeting for Mr. St. Clair in January 2014.

1,065 crashes in 10 years on a three mile stretch of four-lane road lined mainly with single family homes led 35th Avenue SW to be dubbed “I-35” by the community.

Soon after the Memorial Walk and Solutions Meeting for Mr. St. Clair, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) announced a road safety project.

On October 22, SDOT officially launched their 35th Avenue SW Road Safety Corridor Project at two well-attended meetings.

We will continue to monitor the project and hope that with robust speed control and traffic safety improvements, this residential street will finally become a safe and healthy community connector in West Seattle.
