Project Coordination Office
What We Do:
The Project Coordination Office (PCO) is charged with coordinating projects planned for the right of way to save money, protect public assets, and reduce construction-related impacts. The PCO sequences utility, paving, and other projects impacting Seattle's streets by collecting data on all construction planned for the streets; and by meeting with project managers, utility managers, and executives to create logical project sequences.
We have updated SMC 15.32.050 to improve pavement moratorium tracking and the exception process. We have also updated the Right of Way Opening and Restoration Rules (ROWRR) to strengthen the protections of our pavement assets.
Project Coordination Data:
By City ordinance, utility agencies are required to provide data regarding planned capital improvement projects in the right of way for the following three (3) years. This data is stored in our PACT database where we use it to coordinate work in the right of way. Currently we update this data with our partner agencies quarterly.
We are required to develop and publish a plan that lists projects scheduled for the next 12 months. The 2017 SUIP shows the location and timing of projects identified by utility companies, government entities, and City of Seattle departments. The listed projects may be under construction in 2017, but changes to project schedules are likely. Additionally, many of the projects listed are considered 'opportunity' projects that won't go into construction unless funding is secured.
