Seattle Freight Master Plan

The City of Seattle is developing a Freight Master Plan (FMP) to address the unique characteristics, needs, and impacts of freight mobility. The plan will help us understand why freight is so important to the city and the region, examine the challenges of moving freight, and develop solutions to address the challenges. The FMP will primarily focus on urban truck freight movement to support Seattle’s increasing demand for goods and services in a safe and reliable manner.  The plan will outline the critical role that freight movement has on meeting the City’s goals for social equity, economic productivity, sustainability, and livable neighborhoods. 

The Freight Master Plan will include elements that have been a part of the other citywide modal master plans such as an existing conditions report, a policy framework, future conditions assessment, identification of near- and long-term improvements, design guidelines, and the creation of an implementation strategy that includes a data-driven prioritization framework. The plan will also consider how the freight network could be updated based on where trucks are actually traveling and in relation to other transportation modes and priorities.

SDOT will be working closely with the freight community this summer and begin broader community engagement this fall. We anticipate completing the plan by fall 2015. For more information please email FreightMasterPlan@seattle.gov.
