ACCESS SEATTLE Construction Coordination Program

Keeping construction coordinated, travelers moving and communities thriving during construction

November 1, 2016

The City recognizes that construction projects in close proximity to one another can potentially impact travel. In response, we developed the Access Seattle Construction Coordination program to identify and proactively resolve potential right-of-way issues.

Areas of dense construction are defined as 'Construction Hubs' that are actively managed to ensure mobility and access to and through work zones.

Currently there are five designated Hubs as shown on the map below. Contractors planning to work in these areas are required to schedule their right-of-way impacts with Hub Site Coordinators before permits are issued.

Site Coordinators:


Kevin Miller
(206) 255-8847


Ken Ewalt
(206) 684-4995


Chris Luedke
(206) 305-6374

The coordination team:

  • Evaluates right-of-way impacts for the duration of individual projects and for all projects collectively within each Hub
  • Coordinates and consolidates temporary closures, detours and haul routes
  • Maintains access to and through impacted areas
  • Facilitates dialog between contractors and the community
  • Works with contractors to respond to and resolve construction related issues in real time
  • Helps public agencies and private contractors work cooperatively to optimize mobility in impact areas
  • Holds regular stakeholder meetings to notify business and neighborhood groups of upcoming development and right-of-way impacts

Construction Hub Coordination Program Map

We continually evaluate permit and construction data to update areas in which construction coordination will be required. Because Hub boundaries transition with the evolving construction landscape, it is best to check with SDOT Permits to determine if your project is in an impact area.

Current Hub boundaries are listed below. 


South Lake Union
Area bounded by Aloha St to the north; Denny Way to the south; 1st Ave W to the west; and I-5 to the east.

Downtown Area
