ACCESS SEATTLE Construction Coordination Program

Keeping construction coordinated, travelers moving and communities thriving during construction

NEW RIGHT of WAY PERMIT RATES!
Starting March 31, 2016

SDOT Street Use right of way permit rates have changed for the first time in five years, moving to a project/service based model. Now a $305 base permit fee covers multiple right of way use types in a project phase, rather than $146 for each individual use.

Changes to your approved permit plan incur a $155 permit modification fee - so planning well and early saves money. And as we expand our inspector team we are instituting standard inspection schedules:

  • Every 10 days for arterials, high impact areas or urban villages
  • Every 20 days for low impact areas.

The hourly service fee is changing from $172 to $196, but now inspections will be holistic instead of for individual use types.

The City recognizes that impacts of construction increase where projects are close together. In response, we developed the Access Seattle Construction Coordination program that identifies and proactively resolves potential right-of-way issues

Currently there are three designated Construction Hubs as shown on the map below. Contractors planning to work in these areas are required to coordinate with the Hub team before permits are issued.

Hub Coordinators actively manage areas of dense construction, working with contractors and community stakeholders to maintain mobility and access.

Site Coordinators:

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 community and business representatives
  • Acts as one point of contact to respond 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. SDOTPermits@seattle.gov
