Department Mission

Delivering a first-rate transportation system for Seattle.

Interim Director Goran Sparrman, P.E.

Goran Sparrman joined the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) as deputy director in October 2011. Overseeing four divisions focused on external service and capital project delivery, he has also been responsible for the Central Waterfront and Elliott Bay Seawall programs.    

Goran came to SDOT from the City of Bellevue where he served as the director of transportation for over ten years, managing a staff of 120 employees and a $20 million annual operating budget. He has been deeply involved in regional transportation issues, and has worked extensively with nearby cities and key transportation entities such as King County Metro, Sound Transit, the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Puget Sound Regional Council.

Prior to his time with Bellevue, Goran served for ten years as the director of Portland’s Bureau of Traffic Management, and also worked as the city traffic engineer for the cities of Sacramento and Portland.

Goran is a native of Sweden and is a licensed professional engineer with undergraduate and graduate degrees in civil engineering and urban planning. When he is not at work, Goran often spends his time attending his 10 year old son’s soccer and other sports activities.
