SDOT Street Use: Codes & Rules

When building in and around City of Seattle public right of way many codes and rules come into play. Here we have assembled details on applicable ordinances, requirements and processes.  This is not an exhaustive list of procedures, though it is a good foundation.

See the links below or click the tabs to navigate through the information.

We ask that you contact us early in your project planning with any questions, to better prepare you and your project for success.

Thank you!
