East Marginal Way Corridor Improvement Project
Last updated: May 1, 2017
As Seattle grows, improvements to freight mobility are essential to promote regional and international economic competitiveness.

In addition, the corridor provides a major connection for people who bike between the West Seattle Bridge Trail, downtown, and the SODO neighborhood.

Schedule and cost estimate
This project began in 2015 with the examination of existing conditions and community input. A variety of methods engaged stakeholders, such as briefings, a public workshop, and an online survey.
In 2017, we are using public input, data collection, and technical analysis to evaluate different options for the future of the corridor.
