2023 was another major year for the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and our work to keep Seattle moving forward. Our theme for the year was “Delivery: fast and flavorful, in concert with our values.”

We focused on accelerating projects to provide more tangible safety and mobility upgrades throughout the city, particularly for people walking, biking, rolling, and riding transit. We also stepped up efforts to address climate change and engaged with community members in planning for the future of transportation in Seattle.

We hope you enjoy reading this year’s highlights!
