The transformation of Seattle’s waterfront is made possible by the removal of the failing Alaskan Way Viaduct and replacement of the deteriorating Elliott Bay Seawall. These projects open-up new public space, from the Olympic Sculpture Park to Pioneer Square, for parks and paths, access to the water, places to enjoy views, vibrant public and cultural spaces, and a new urban street that will accommodate all modes of travel and provide an important connection in the City’s transportation system.

There has been no environmental review to date, even preliminary, on any Waterfront Seattle projects as they are still in the conceptual design stage and design for any project is not far enough along to allow environmental review to begin. The picture emerging for Waterfront Seattle includes a wide range of improvements, some big and some small, each separately helping make Seattle’s waterfront a better place. These improvements will be implemented as the need and opportunity arises and funding allows. Implementation will include advancing the design concepts to provide the more detailed information needed for environmental review and permitting. The type of environmental review and permits will largely depend on whether in-water work is involved and the potential for significant impacts. The public, agencies and stakeholders will be informed and involved as each project moves forward. This approach allows flexibility to move projects forward and ensures each improvement will have appropriate, detailed review.





HOSTED BY: City of Seattle’s Departments of Transportation, Planning & Development, and Parks & Recreation
