ACCESS SEATTLE

Keeping travelers moving, construction coordinated and communities thriving during construction

January 12, 2016

Robust development helps us grow a healthy economy and improve infrastructure, but density of construction can also create challenges. Access Seattle is an initiative focused on maintaining mobility in the city during construction, addressing the impacts in three ways; construction coordination, traveler engagement, and business & community support.

CONSTRUCTION COORDINATION

By coordinating construction activity that affects the public right-of-way, SDOT works to:

  • Minimize mobility impacts
  • Maintain multi-modal access
  • Make construction more efficient
  • Proactively resolve potential right-of-way conflicts
  • Resolve emergent issues in real time
  • Create a single point of contact for coordinating multi-agency responses
  • Facilitate contractor/stakeholder dialog to help contractors be good neighbors

The team also strategizes with City, County and State agencies to limit right-of-way closures and consolidate activities to reduce interruptions to travel. 

CONSTRUCTION COORDINATION RESOURCES

Construction variables can cause unforeseen impacts. Construction Hub coordinators address emergent right-of-way impacts in real time, coordinating interagency responses to resolve stakeholder concerns. If you have a construction related access question, please contact us at SDOTConstructionHub@seattle.gov

Projects in designated areas of dense construction activity need to participate in schedule coordination. Street Use requests are compiled and analyzed to identify and proactively mitigate potential conflicts and issues. Learn more about Construction Hub Coordination at: www.seattle.gov/transportation/hub.htm

If you are planning a project, you may need to submit a Construction Management Plan (CMP) three to six months before your project is scheduled to begin. Learn more about CMP requirements at: www.seattle.gov/transportation/cmp.htm

TRAVELER ENGAGEMENT

The Seattle Area Construction Look Ahead shows planned construction activity and events that impact the right-of-way, along with links to traffic cameras and other traveler resources. Know before you go:

COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Mobility is key to maintaining a vibrant economy. Access Seattle supports communities affected by construction impacts to the right-of-way:

  • One point of contact for addressing construction related concerns
  • Regular stakeholder meeting to notify business and neighborhood groups of upcoming right-of-way impacts
