Presentations to the Freight Advisory Board

Sponsors

The project is being carried out  by the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) in partnership with the Port of Seattle (POS). The transportation firm, the Transpo Group, has been hired as a consultant to assist SDOT with the project.

Purpose

The purposes of the Seattle Industrial Areas Freight Access Project are to support and promote regional and international economic competitiveness and lay the groundwork for a more comprehensive Seattle Freight Master Plan. The project will do this by identifying and initiating solutions to freight mobility, circulation and access needs within and between:

  • the Greater Duwamish and Ballard Interbay Northend Manufacturing and Industrial Centers (MICs); and
  • connecting corridors from the centers to the regional transportation system, including the interstate and state highways, Port of Seattle facilities and local rail yards.

Project Goals

Assess opportunities and initiate solutions within the study area to:

  • Maintain and improve freight-truck mobility and access to accommodate expected freight and cargo growth
  • Ensure connectivity for major freight intermodal and transload facilities
  • Increase safety for all travel modes
  • Reduce environmental impacts, including greenhouse gas emissions

Project Outcome

SDOT and POS expect to develop a set of prioritized short-, intermediate-, and long-term improvement recommendations to be considered in the City Freight Master Plan and the respective agencies’ implementation programs.

Stakeholder Outreach

The City of Seattle Freight Advisory Board will serve as the primary stakeholder advisory group to the project along with input from a wide range of freight interests and organizations.
