The Many Ways to Stay Connected

One of SDOT’s top priorities is to keep the public informed about construction, road conditions, special events, upcoming projects, and anything else that might impact your lives and we have a number of avenues to keep you in the loop.

For starters, our website is full of extremely useful information.  Whether you’re interested in up-to-the-minute road conditions, winter weather updates, or looking for information about parking or traffic calming, you’ll find it here.  Our website is also a portal that will connect you to the transportation information you need most.

www.seattle.gov/transportation is a great resource for transportation information

Twitter

SDOT uses Twitter to get information out fast. Our Traffic Management Center tweets when there are incidents on our streets, bridge openings, signal outages, and whenever travelers need information quickly.

Facebook

Podcasts

SDOT uploads podcasts for your enjoyment regularly.  Topics range from project-specific to more philosophical discussions about transportation choices.
