Pilot Projects

Various City of Seattle departments use pilot projects to test innovative approaches to improving the pedestrian environment, among other things. One example of a pilot project is SEA Streets. SEA Streets is an alternative street design that uses grading, soil science, plant selection and layout combined with traditional drainage infrastructure to function more like an undeveloped ecosystem. It provides a sidewalk and traffic calming, all at a cost comparable to a traditional curb, gutter and sidewalk street improvement.
