What Work is Planned for my Street?

Residents often ask the Seattle Department of Transportation what work is planned for their street when they see some indication that work is being set up.  It can take some sleuthing to identify exactly what is happening at that location. There are several places to look:

Construction Map–You can find larger, preplanned construction projects listed on the “Planned Transportation Construction Map” on SDOT’s Web site. Move around and zoom in to find what is planned for your area. Then click on a point on the map–where a project is indicated–to have information about the project displayed in the right hand column of the screen. To find out about any Street Use Permits issued for street work, select Street Use Permits listed on the right hand side of the screen, and again click on a point on the map, for information at that location.

Traffic Advisories–Notices about activities that will block streets can be found at the bottom of SDOT’s website.  Click on the title, On the Move, to see the full list.

Special Events–To find out if any special events are planned that could block of an area of a street, see the city’s Special Event Calendar.

Film Productions–For current film production projects, see Film Production of the Week.

If you need assistance to find out what is happening on your street, we may be able to locate the information if the work is being done by an SDOT crew.  Please call SDOT at (206) 684-ROAD, (206) 684-7623.
