On March 23, 2020, Seattle Department of Transportation closed the West Seattle Bridge to traffic due to safety concerns around potential bridge collapse.
Lisa Herbold’s office has put out some information and a survey regarding the repair or replacement of the West Seattle Bridge.
If you are interested in the ongoing work, or in adding your perspective, please take this survey
There are two surveys taking place right now, each is open until July 31st. It is important that the city hear your voice. Tell them what you need.
Reconnect West Seattle Survey:
This survey is for everyone who lives or works in West Seattle. The survey is the community’s chance to let SDOT and our partners know what you need to move on and off the West Seattle peninsula at similar rates to before the High-Rise Bridge closure, but with a significant reduction in travel lanes.
Neighborhood Prioritications Process Ballots: for Southwest Seattle, Georgetown, SODO and South Park.
The ballots include lists of potential projects that were generated from ideas we have received from community, along with some of our own ideas, and projects from existing transportation and neighborhood plans. While a much larger mix of projects remain on our radar, we recognize the need for immediate action. Therefore, the lists include projects that can be completed quickly and cost less than $100,000.
