What do all those pavement markings mean?

SDOT City Traffic Engineer, Dongho Chang, explains bicycle and transit markings that help cyclists, drivers, pedestrians and transit riders navigate our streets. It’s part of our effort to keep everyone safe as they travel in and around the city.

Seattle is recognized as one of the safest cities in the country, but there’s more work to do to reach our Vision Zero goal of ending traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2030. We continue to improve our transportation network to make our roadways safer for all. Thank you for continuing to look out for one another, whether you’re walking, cycling, or driving.
