In 2007 Seattle passed a Complete Street Ordinance that required SDOT to plan, design, and construct new transportation improvements to accommodate pedestrians, bicycles, and transit while promoting safe operation for all users.
For a corridor to be considered as a candidate for a road diet, SDOT requires that it be identified in the city's list of complete streets capital projects or its pedestrian or bicyclist master plans.
As for congestion, SDOT has found an actual gain in efficiency by removing left turns from travel lanes.
Tetra Tech will assist SDOT in replacing the central portion from S.
Tetra Tech has extensive experience with delivering multi-disciplinary design efforts, enhancing marine habitats, preparing environmental documentation, and providing permit support for large, complex projects involving land and water," said SDOT in a statement released by the City of Seattle.
As a public agency, SDOT adopted ProjectTalk to manage complex capital projects more effectively and improve construction project accountability.
SDOT selected P7 Integration, in partnership with Kelar Pacific, LLC, as its professional services provider.
During the first year of using ProjectTalk, SDOT utilized the system to manage only major capital projects.
