Community SR520 Bridge Replacement Survey

As the SR520 Bridge Replacement Project progresses though Seattle from Montlake to I-5, this survey asks for your assessment of the Washington State Department of Transportation’s (WSDOT’s) public engagement concerning its construction plans, including the taking of the Montlake Market, as well as WSDOT’s adherence to the City Council’s 2015 Resolution 31611 to complete design and construction refinements with community input.

Community leaders in Montlake, Portage Bay/Roanoke Park, N. Capitol Hill, Laurelhurst and Madison Park seek to assess WSDOT’s outreach, transparency and engagement with impacted neighborhoods. Please help us collect this important data by filling out this survey. The survey will close March 8th, 2019 at 5:00pm. Results will be posted online and provided to the Seattle City Council, Mayor Durkan, State Legislators, and Governor Inslee.
