New 4-Way Stop at 220th/58th Operational [VIDEO]
The new 4-way stop at 220th St SW and 58th Ave W was put in to operation today, July 29. Many people have been concerned that this new stop, in close proximity to I-5 and the signal at 56th, would cause some significant backups during rush hour. See some of the comments on the MLTnew Facebook posts below. Maybe this fall when the school opens things will be different, but today during the evening rush traffic appeared to be flowing smoothly.
This video was taken at 5:30 pm. Several light cycles at the I-5 ramps occur and the longest eastbound queue was 6 cars.

Here is a video of the traffic model and how the City expected the intersection to perform.
