West Seattle Area

We want to hear from you! Stay tuned for information on how you can share your feedback on current parking utilization in West Seattle Junction and Triangle areas, and potential parking management changes.

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. SDOT is in the process of conducting comprehensive area parking studies in residential and commercial areas near West Seattle Junction and West Seattle Triangle. These studies will document how parking is used today and inform potential parking management changes.

Study Area Map

The project area includes the West Seattle Junction and Triangle areas and is bounded by 36th Avenue Southwest to the east, southwest Dakota street to the north, 46th Avenue Southwest to the west and Southwest Dawson Street to the south.

What you can expect

  • SDOT will conduct a commercial area parking study and a Residential Parking Zone (RPZ) study this fall to better understand the parking usage in the area.
  • SDOT will collect feedback on area parking and access from residents, businesses and visitors through an online survey in the fall.
  • SDOT will also conduct an intercept survey in the fall to determine how and why customers, visitors, and employees are traveling to and parking in the West Seattle Junction area.
  • Data from these studies and surveys will inform parking strategies for the West Seattle area.
  • If there are identified parking management changes, SDOT will develop a proposal and collect feedback on proposed parking management changes in early 2018.
