26 Minute Wait Time for Pedestrian "Walk" Signal

I hear from people all the time complaining about how long it takes a traffic light to change to green or about extended wait times after pedestrians push the "walk" button at a crosswalk. But 26 minutes?? That's how long it took for the light to change to "walk" recently on Martin Luther King Jr. Way in South Seattle, as documented by a determined walker.

King 5 News looks at the problem.
