Traffic jams at one of city's worst intersections | Letters
As a resident of Twin Lakes, I would like to reply to Ann Caughey's letter from May 17 in which she questioned the construction in the vicinity of 21st Avenue SW, SW 336th Street, and Campus Drive.
Yes, the current re-striping and initial construction and re-signalization is a total mess and backs up traffic real bad. It is going to become much worse.
The City of Federal Way will be taking property from various merchants and widening 336th and Campus Drive in the vicinity of 21st Avenue SW, in order to provide enough width to handle the scheme of things they have planned.
According to city traffic engineer Rick Perez, there will be a dedicated lane for making right turns, two straight through lanes and two lanes for making double left turns.
When completed, this should speed up the traffic flow considerably. Rick states that this intersection is the worst one in the city west of Highway 99.
