Current South Park Conveyance study area; boundaries may change based on technical feasibility.
The northern industrial and residential area of South Park experiences chronic flooding for three reasons:
This project will construct roadways and stormwater conveyance systems to direct stormwater to a future pump station and water quality facility. The project’s scope and design are being planned in coordination with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT).
Many of the streets in this area are in poor condition, which adversely affects water quality and impacts freight mobility. Rebuilding the roadways is an important part of this project for both SPU and SDOT, since it will allow streets to drain effectively into the new stormwater conveyance system. SPU and SDOT are partnering to reduce construction impacts on the community.
