Keeping Washington moving safely and efficiently requires long term planning, especially when it comes to construction.
Our Construction Traffic Management Team works with dozens of project teams not just from WSDOT but also from counties, cities and other local jurisdictions like ports and transit agencies to assess construction traffic impacts.
The team then identifies hot spots, which consists of several construction projects working in close proximity at the same time. Early coordination in these areas helps to keep traffic moving during construction while allowing agencies to complete their projects on time and within budget.
The maps and schedules on our website reflect the best estimate of future construction closures and are provided for planning purposes only. A number of different factors can cause the maps and schedules to change. In some cases, the maps and schedules might change multiple times before construction occurs.
For construction projects happening in 2015 and 2016 check out our construction hot spot data in the links above. We also have a high clip overview of Seattle area construction over the next 12 months. This document contains less detail than the schedules on our hot spot page but will give you an idea of what's coming up in a glance.
