It is time. Traffic increases steadily along with the rising population and this area becomes more dangerous.

Michele Mangiantini (Port Angeles, 2021-01-09)


As a CDL holder and former Transit operator I am requesting the changes be made as they are essential for safety.

Charlene Buckley (Sequim , 2021-01-09)


I travel the stretch of Hwy 101 in question frequently, and believe that it is unsafe. A frontage road would provide a remedy.

Alane Olson (Sequim, 2021-01-09)


The East Sequim Highway 101 corridor is dangerous to drive. I agree with the contents of the petition.

David Ahlman (Sequim, WA, 2021-01-10)


I use this route frequently and feel it is quite dangerous.

Donna Tomsula (Sequim, 2021-01-10)


It’s dearly needed to save lives!!

Linda Diesen (Sequim , 2021-01-11)


This is badly needed to prevent more accidents and traffic fatalities.

Nancy Bull (Sequim, 2021-01-12)


That section of the highway is very dangerous and people drive through that section many times a day. Please support the citizens of Sequim by making it safer to travel through that section of the highway.

Roger Huntley (Sequim, 2021-01-12)


I live on Happy Valley and have seen major changes in traffic flow in the past 19 years. It is scary getting both on and off the highway. Even turning right onto HV causes people to honk, tailgate and become irate as there is no turning lane. Taking a left onto the highway from HV is even more treacherous. Going all the way to 3rd or River adds anywhere from 5 to 13 minutes. Yes-we bought on that road, but in all fairness, in 2002 it was not that bad.

SHERYL GREER (Sequim, 2021-01-12)


Everyone who travels Highway 101 E from Sequim approaches an extremely dangerous intersection with Pal Alto Road which cannot be seen in time to brake for traffic entering the highway. There is a second less dangerous intersection with Louella. Drivers unfamiliar with the area (tourists),
distracted drivers and those who are afraid of being rear-ended by fellow eastbound travelers fail to heed the “advisory 35 mph” sign. People have died as a consequence. Signage is inadequate. The roadway needs to be modified to either improve visibility, change where Palo Alto enters 101, provide a traffic light with flashing warning lights before the light, an extra lane for entering 101 at that intersection, or some other civil engineering solution. The hazard has been ignored for decades. It needs fixing

Minerva Hodis (Sequim , 2021-01-13)


I’m signing because I am one of the people that drive Highway 101 daily, and I recognize the dangers this road poses, and there is no reason why we cannot work to make it safer!

Thomas Bartoy (Sequim, 2021-01-13)


I live in Sequim and I travel this road and am very concerned about how safe it is.

Nikki Cheatham (Sequim, 2021-01-13)


I know how difficult it is negotiate exiting to the hwy.

Bobbi Goff (Sequim, 2021-01-14)


We need deceleration lanes as well as the left turn lanes. Widen the sides of the roads instead of steep ditches in case of a road emergency. Illuminate where the road and Highway intersects. From Simdars to Louella.

Tim Jackson (Sequim, 2021-01-15)


Its an obvious safety hazard. I’ve experienced this danger first hand in trying get onto 101 from this road.

Donna MacLean (Sequim, 2021-01-17)


I am signing because I am extremely concerned for public safety.

Patrick Murphy (Sequim, 2021-01-17)


My niece was killed in recent head-on collision. This is a dangerous stretch of road. Thank you.

Kerri Bauchspies (Tacoma , 2021-01-18)


It is a dangerous situation thatn needs to be addressed.

Diane Bloodworth (SEQUIM, 2021-01-20)


I'm signing because I believe the people of Clallam County in the Sequim area need to have the 101 roadway safe to drive.

Kathy Beltran (Sequim, 2021-01-20)



Gerard Beltran (SEQUIM, 2021-01-20)


I'm signing because I have close friends who live on Palo Alto Road and am terrified every time I have to turn left onto Highway 101 after a visit.

Barbara Burrows (Sequim , 2021-01-20)


We travel through this section of roadway regularly and just hold our breath that we can get through without incident. Nearly had an accident there a couple weeks ago. Something NEEDS to be done!

JoAnne Stefanac (SEQUIM, 2021-01-20)


Palo Altoona intersection is a blind spot and is very dangerous!

Mark Sanders (Sequim, 2021-01-20)


The intersection at Palo Alto and Hwy 101 is extremely dangerous and is very difficult to enter and exit from. I worry for my family and friends safety every time they need to use it.

Rhiannon Archuleta (Sequim, 2021-01-20)


I have had two close calls when cars leave Happy Valley and Palo Alto Roads on to Highway 101.



This is a dangerous section of Highway 101 that needs improvement.

Jerome Hines (Sequim, 2021-01-20)


I'm Signing this petition as it is desperately needed to keep drivers safe. We should not have the to face the loss of anyone else's life to get this accomplished.

Cathy Kurtz (Sequim, 2021-01-21)


I’m a senior citizen resident of Happy Valley and feel like I’m risking my life every time I try to get off of highway 101 into my neighborhood. HELP!

Dale Jarvis (Sequim, 2021-01-21)


I live here. Need two lanes each way. Need a westbound on ramp eastbound off ramp.

Thomas Gooch (Sequim, 2021-01-21)


I've lived on upper Palo Alto Rd for 47 years and have never gotten used to the harrowing experience of entering onto Hwy 101 from our road. There have been minor changes over the years but none have made it a safe driving experience. Please make the needed changes as soon as possible before more people are injured or killed.

William Shaw (Sequim, 2021-01-22)


There's been way too many accidents on this stretch of the road.

Christine Hill (Sequim, 2021-01-24)


I'm signing because I've seen too many accidents along that section of roadway and safety needs to be improved.

James Stoffer (Sequim, 2021-01-24)


That turn is treacherous!

Cassandra Vandeweghe (Sequim, 2021-01-24)


I live on Happy Valley road and the turn to get on is unsafe.

Alex Greer (Sequim, 2021-01-24)


Much needed improvement of US 101 east of Sequim for safety, habitat, and economic welfare.

Larry Jeffryes (Sequim, 2021-01-24)


This needs to happen before more deaths occur

Jennifer Turner (Port Angeles, 2021-01-25)


This section of 101 is dangerous. We have many smaller accidents often and more people on the road is leading to more serious accidents and deaths. Just because we are not part of the Seattle area doesn’t mean we should be left with dangerous roads.

Sharon Ganje (Sequim, 2021-01-25)


The East end is a real problem with access to the 101 West or getting off the 101 to yhe east end of Washington Blvd. because of the lack of on and off ramps to and from the 101.

Brad Petrie (Sequim , 2021-01-25)


I’m signing because I live on the East side of Happy Valley and find it dangerous to turn right onto Happy Valley off 101. Speed has to be reduced, especially if someone is at the junction already. Often cars behind don’t seem to realize they need to slow.

Wendy Light (Sequim, 2021-01-26)


I had a friend almost a year ago killed at one of these places. He left behind 2 beautiful kids and his love.

Amanda McCord (Port Angeles, 2021-01-26)


It has impacted the lives of many I have known, including fatalities, from these accidents. I myself have narrowly missed an accident.
Feels like a simple solution would be to fix a FLAWED design that is proven to have created deaths.

Dustin BRENSKE (SEQUIM, 2021-01-26)


I'm signing because this is a safety issue for us in Sequim and others who travel into Sequim.

Katherine Long (Sequim, 2021-01-27)


This is a very dangerous section of highway.

Nancy Elwert (Sequim, 2021-01-28)


I am local and travel that dangerous stretch of highway multiple times each week.

Richard P. Gookins (Sequim, 2021-01-28)


We need help for our safety

Shannon Slattery (Sequim , 2021-01-29)


I live on Palo Alto Road and know how difficult it is to get on highway 101. I've seen a lot of close calls at that intersection.

Paul Warner (Sequim , 2021-01-29)


I have to travel a short distance on hwy 101 from my home, west into Sequim. Traffic coming from the east and the west, at high speeds, is obstructed by topography, making it challenging and extremely dangerous.
This two-lane highway can cause traffic to come to a sudden stop if someone is making a left turn on to Palo Alto Road, adding to the danger.
Please, I urge you to consider this roadwork project a top priority for 2021.

Eva Terry (Sequim, 2021-02-01)


This is a very dangerous place to have vehicles trying to get on the highway going east or west!

Linda Qualls (Port Angeles, 2021-02-01)


There is currently no safe way to get on and off Hwy 101 from Louella Rd. I and my family and friends take our lives in our hands everytime we come to or leave my home.

Joan Rudd (Sequim, 2021-02-01)


I live in Happy Valley and agree that the described piece of highway is extremely dangerous and should be re-engineered

Sharon Cochran Jensen (Sequim, 2021-02-01)


I see the improvements are needed

Michael Charles (Port Angeles, 2021-02-01)


While waiting to turn left from Hwy 101 onto Happy Valley Rd, my husband was almost front ended by a large truck, going east on 101, which went around a car that had slowed to turn right onto Happy Valley Rd. Fortunately the truck missed my husband, but just barely.

Joanne Hatfield (Sequim, 2021-02-01)


This area has been the site of many accidents and I feel that it is dire need of road safely improvements. Thank you for any consideration in this effort to help ensure the safety of drivers who use these roadways.

DIANA WICKMAN (Sequim, 2021-02-02)


I am Happy Valley resident and have witnessed several fatalities in this area, evidence that HWY improvement needs to happen as soon as possible.

diana lee (sequim, 2021-02-04)


I’m signing because I use Palo Alto Road to access recreation activities at least once per week and to visit friends up in the area. I use the shoulder of the road when traveling eastbound to exit Hwy 101 onto Palo Alto. Many times traffic speed and frequency have made a westbound turn across traffic almost impossible to return to Sequim. I have often chosen to turn right onto 101 until there is a left turn lane. I exit 101 and use back roads to get back into Sequim.
A service Road on the south side of 101 could provide a safe way to access Palo Alto Rd to and frim Sequim.
I urge you to make safety road improvements a priority.

Lisa Ballantyne (Sequim, 2021-02-05)


I'm signing because the safety of these intersections must be improved.
