The Westlake Transportation Hub is getting a well-deserved facelift to improve pedestrian, bike, and transit access in downtown Seattle. SDOT plans to construct a new pedestrian and bicycle-friendly plaza at the current terminus of the Seattle Streetcar by closing one block of Westlake Ave to traffic between Olive Way and Stewart Street. As part of the project, improvements to the historic McGraw Square Park will be integrated into the design along with new landscaping, covered bicycle parking, and additional streetcar station amenities. Slated to begin construction later this year, this grant-funded project is almost halfway through the design phase and we want to hear from you!

SDOT is hosting an open house to discuss project details. Your feedback is critical to finalizing several elements of the plaza and ensuring its success.

Join us tomorrow, Wednesday, February 3 from 5:30 – 7:30pm at the Central Branch of the Seattle Public Library (Level 4, Room 2: Wright/Ketcham Meeting Room). For background info, visit the project website here. Please note that the page is currently being revised, so stay tuned for updates.
