Design Update for the S Lander St Bridge Project

The plan for the S Lander St Bridge Project is to build a bridge on S Lander St between 1st Ave S and 4th Ave S to reduce traffic delays while increasing safety and mobility for all users in that neighborhood. We’ve been hearing feedback from the community about its new design.


Lander Project Open House on Thursday, September 22.


A rendering of what the future S Lander St Bridge could look like.

At an open house last Thursday, about 40 people from the community, local businesses, and property owners joined us in SODO to hear the latest updates on the bridge’s design, which is now 30% complete. The current design is a result of feedback from stakeholders, as well as residents after an initial open house and online open house in June.

People at the open house learned about how public input was incorporated into the current design, which includes a multi-use path on the bridge’s north side, as well as improved access on 3rd Ave S and Occidental Ave S.  They also got a chance to see visualizations of what the bridge could look like. Comments at the meeting focused on bicycle and pedestrian connectivity and safety, parking, and business access.

Still Time to Give Feedback

The project team will consider this latest round of input, including urban design preferences, as we move forward in the design phase. Thanks to all who attended the meeting or have submitted comments. We’re committed to building a bridge that meets the needs of the community, and your feedback helps us get there!
