It's time to invest in safer streets

The start of Bike Month should be a time of happiness, yet on May 1, 2013, we come together to grieve the loss of a bicyclist on our roadways. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of all who were involved in this morning’s fatal crash.

In a 2011 report to the Duwamish Transportation Management Association, Cascade identified the intersection of South Hanford and Alaska / East Marginal Way as a barrier and in need of improvement. It’s tragic that it may take a loss of life to have these safety improvements taken seriously. It doesn’t have to be this way.

It’s time we stopped talking about making our streets safer and started making the necessary investments to get it done.
