Arterial Paving: A Capital Idea

Maintaining Seattle’s streets is one of the most important things we do at SDOT, and we have 6 major paving projects planned for 2017 as part of our arterial Paving Program.

Arterials are the primary routes for moving people and goods through the city, as well as connecting neighborhoods, business districts, and our region. Ongoing maintenance helps avoid more expensive major repairs in the future, and keeps our community moving today.

Arterial paving is supported by the voter-approved Levy to Move Seattle, which makes it possible for us to pave up to 180 lane miles of arterial streets over nine years.

You can click on the below links for more information on each project’s schedule, impact, and how to get in touch with the team.

Remember, in 2016 the Seattle City Council lowered all arterial speed limits to 25mph unless otherwise posted.
