See project details and learn what we're proposing with our new open house display boards.

We’ve used community feedback, technical data, and transportation plans to develop a preferred option that redesigns Delridge Way SW to move people safely and efficiently.

The new lane layout includes bus lanes, landscaped medians, crosswalk improvements, protected bike lanes, neighborhood greenway connections, signal upgrades, paving, water and sewer pipe upgrades, spot parking and bike lane removal, and public art.

How can I get involved?

We're always interested in meeting with community and neighborhood groups that want to learn more about the project and make their voices heard.

You can request a briefing by emailing DelridgeTransit@seattle.gov or calling 206-684-8105. Thank you.

Do you live outside the city of Seattle?

Metro is bringing RapidRide amenities and improving service between the Seattle city limits, White Center, and Burien. Additional project funding for these improvements comes from grant sources that Metro has already secured. Metro will be conducting public outreach about the project changes in these areas in 2018.
