Reduced Staffing at SDOT on Furlough Days

To address the economic downturn, city employees will be taking unpaid furlough days to help with the city’s budget.  The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will participate by splitting the furloughing of its staff between two days in each furlough period.

Please expect to see reduced staffing at SDOT on the following days:

January 15 and 19     July 2 and 6   
February 12 and 16 August 6 and 9
March 12 and 15 September 3 and 7
April 9 and 12 October 8 and 11
May 28 and June 1 December 23 and 27

Please be patient with our staff as there will be fewer employees to assist you on these days.  While we may need to adjust our business practices due to the reduced staffing, SDOT remains committed to providing first rate service to our customers.

If you have any questions about the city’s furlough policy or SDOT’s service adjustments, please contact the department by calling 684-ROAD.

Thank you for your understanding and have a safe Independence Day!
