The most dangerous intersection in LFP is a little safer now

No left turn onto Bothell Way from Brookside.

In an effort to reduce injuries and collisions in Lake Forest Park, a new left turn restriction has been established at Brookside Boulevard NE when entering Bothell Way NE.

As you will see from the photo, making a left turn from Brookside onto Bothell Way is now prohibited.

Right turns only.

We want to thank all of our citizens who responded to our request for comment earlier this year regarding this change.

LFP Police had identified this intersection as one of their top crash locations.

Here are just a few photos from a crash at the Brookside and Bothell Way location which happened in February of this year. No one was seriously injured in this one but traffic on Bothell Way was snarled for hours.

The turn restriction is expected to reduce the number of crashes at that site.
