Marion Street Bridge

Review Status

On January 3, 2019, we reviewed the design development phase (90% design) for the Marion Street Bridge project. At this meeting we approved the design development with several recommendations.

Project Description

Marion Street Bridge provides a connection between Downtown and Colman Dock and the Waterfront.  The existing bridge will be replaced as part of the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct and reconstruction of Alaskan Way.  The project is a part of the Waterfront Seattle development and is being designed in cooperation with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).  The bridge will be constructed out of concrete and will include a 16 ft. wide pathway, lighting, and pedestrian railing.  The bridge will be constructed in two phases.  Phase I includes the design and construction of the bridge crossing Alaskan Way from Colman Dock to Western Ave.  Phase II will include the design and construction of the pedestrian pathway above Marion St. from 1st Ave to Western Ave.

When you attend a SDC meeting, we provide a time for members of the public to comment. We ask people to sign up when they attend a meeting - we use a sign in sheet to keep track of attendance and to see who wants to speak. We also use this sheet to send notice of future meetings on the project you came to follow. We generally limit comments to two minutes per person. When there are larger groups of people who want to speak on the same topic, we ask that the group appoint a spokesperson to speak for the group. We give groups up to five minutes for public comment. It is helpful to also submit your comment prior to the SDC meeting.  This will allow more time for the commission to consider your comment.  See below for more information.

Do you want to submit a written comment? Submit your written comments by emailing:  SDC_Administration@seattle.gov; Please be sure to include the name of the project in the subject line. Please submit your comments prior to the day of the project review.  This will allow more time for the commission to consider your comment.
