Stairways

Stairways are typically constructed of concrete, but many existing stairways in Seattle are constructed of other materials such as bricks, stones, wood, or metal. Stairways can be located in the public right-of-way, on easements, or on private property.

Stairways provide important pedestrian connections in Seattle, especially given the regions hilly terrain. In many cases, a stairway may shorten the travel distance for a pedestrian since it is possible to traverse a steep slope via stairway that would be impossible on the roadway.
