What’s moving Seattle this week?

Did you know??

We’re jumping right in to highlight what’s hot and moving Seattle this week but just the tip-top crunchy crust (best parts) because did you know that our Project Coordination and Construction Office is tracking 901 projects and construction events happening – RIGHT – NOW? #TrueStory!

  • ??? 137 of them have no defined mobility impacts.
  • ??? 760+ have either single mobility impacts, arterial lane closures, or multiple mobility impacts. Wanna take a peek??

That said, there’s lots of coordination behind the scenes.

 

We love sharing resources.

Here are some quick resources for a list of events/construction lookahead (Yes! This info lives in more than one place!). We also have this info plopped on a map (aka traveler’s info map).
