West Seattle Area

New! We have reviewed the comments we received this summer regarding a potential West Seattle Junction Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) and plan to release a formal RPZ proposal in January 2019. 

This proposal will include other time limit and space changes except the two free-floating carshare spaces, which SDOT is planning to install in late 2018.

Next Steps

SDOT is releasing a formal RPZ proposal will be released to the community in January 2019 along with a date and location for an RPZ public hearing. Unpaid time limit and individual space changes will be finalized in early 2019 as well. Free-floating carshare spaces from the earlier proposal will be installed in late 2018.

Project Background

As Seattle continues to grow, so too does the demand for access and parking in the City's busiest areas, including our urban villages and neighborhood business districts like West Seattle. Specific to West Seattle, SDOT also received a formal request for a new Restricted Parking Zone. SDOT is reviewing parking and access in the area with local stakeholders to determine potential improvements to area parking management.
