40,000 and counting!


SDOT crews have worked at a hectic pace replacing regulatory signs, such as these, all over Seattle.


Through the Bridging the Gap Transportation levy, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is working to replace those old, faded, hard-to-read regulatory and street name signs across the city.  To date,  more than 40,000 regulatory signs have been replaced and more than 7,700 intersections have seen new street name signs.  This year alone, more than 1,000 intersections have received new street name signs and SDOT’s hard working  crews have installed more than 2,000 new regulatory signs across the city.

All these new signs make it easier for everyone to navigate the city – especially the new street name signs – something we are all very thankful for!

As noted in a previous blog post, various street name signs – named and numbered – are available through the City of Seattle Fleets and Facilities surplus warehouse.   They have posted an updated list of available signs which range in price from $5 – 15.  Please contact the warehouse directly if you are interested in purchasing a sign.
