Elliott Bay Seawall Project - WMBE Inclusion Information

Mortenson/Manson JV (M/M) is the General Contractor/Construction Manager (GC/CM) for the Elliott Bay Seawall Project. The Seattle Department of Transportation is replacing the failing seawall, built between 1916 and 1934, along downtown Seattle to provide the necessary foundation and structural support for a new waterfront. The deteriorating Seawall was not designed for earthquakes and poses the threat of structural failure during a moderate to large earthquake.

The City of Seattle's Elliott Bay Seawall runs underneath Alaskan Way along Elliott Bay in downtown Seattle from South Washington Street to Broad Street. M/M will be responsible for construction of the central portion of the seawall from South Washington Street to the northern edge of Pier 63 (roughly Virginia Street). The successful completion of this project will form the foundation upon which the upland improvements in the City's Waterfront Program will rest. For more information about the project visit the Waterfront Seattle website.

Firms that are interested in this project are encouraged to attend pre-bid meetings for each bid package. For more information regarding upcoming pre-bid meetings:
