Street Murals

Street murals, such as painted intersections, help add color and prompt creativity on residential streets while promoting community building within Seattle’s neighborhoods. While a street mural is not an official traffic calming device, it may have an indirect impact on traffic speeds by encouraging drivers to be respectful of neighbors who live in the area. Street murals are completely community-driven and community-designed projects, and funding for these projects is available through the Department of Neighborhood’s Neighborhood Matching Fund Program. All mural designs and locations are subject to a review by SDOT’s Traffic Operations Division.

If you are interested in a street mural project for your neighborhood, Client Assistance Memo 2506 provides all the information you need to know about how to site, design, and permit a mural.
