We request more traffic controls for S. Genesee St. as soon as possible. The stop sign recently added at 38th and Genesee has begun to address the traffic calming necessary for this high-use street, but as soon as cars pass that stop sign, or if they are coming from Lake Washington Boulevard or 50th ave S., this stretch of Genesee regularly sees cars going 40 miles an hour without regard for pedestrians. With the amount of activity near these streets (playfields, dog park,football fields, children's activities such as cheerleading practice, soccer, baseball, rowing center, trails, etc), Genesee should not be so treacherous and impossible to cross. After several accidents, we feel it is time to incorporate better lighting, a four way stop at 46th Ave S. and S. Genesee St, cross- walks with lit paths activated by pedestrians, and 20mph zones regulated by camera. Similar traffic calming should also be considered at S. Lake Washington Blvd. near the Mt Baker Rowing Center. Crossing from Genesee Park to the lakeside is similarly dangerous. The citizens of this neighborhood and all the people who enjoy its recreations (SeaFair, Danskin Triathalon, Seattle Marathon, etc) need to be able to cross S. Genesee st. and Lake WA Blvd. without jeopardizing life and limb.
