S Lander Street Bridge Project: FASTLANE Federal Grant
On July 6, 2016, the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced that the City of Seattle's S Lander St Bridge Project has been selected to receive a $45 million award under the new Federal FASTLANE Grant Program, the largest grant award for Washington state. This is a new grant program created under the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act and was passed by Congress in late 2015 to fund critical freight and highway projects across the country.
The City thanks the many project partners who helped support the successful grant application process. We are now closer than ever to fully funding this project, and we will continue working with our partners to close the remaining funding gap.
S Lander St. is a vital route for freight and general travel in the largest manufacturing industrial center in the Pacific Northwest. It provides direct connections to Port of Seattle facilities and freight operational support centers, which contribute to 75,000 existing jobs and an additional 25,000 jobs that are forecasted by 2040.
Train crossings on S Lander St create over 4.5 hours of delay for commuters and freight each day, impacting the mobility of tens of thousands of people and severely affecting access to port and manufacturing facilities critical to our economy.
The S Lander St Project is a priority for the city, state and region, and has support from the manufacturing and industrial community, resident businesses, commuters, and community groups.
