Why Share the Ride?

Carpooling can be a great option to get to work quicker and save money.

You’ll reduce wear and tear on your car and spend less on gas. Plus you can use the HOV lanes, which tend to move faster.  The ride-matching website can help you find carpool or vanpool partners who have similar routes and schedules.

Important information from SDOT about road repairs in South Park

From Melanie Mayock, Manufacturing Industrial Council and Duwamish Transportation Management Association

Dear South Park Businesses,

I’m writing to make sure you’re aware that the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is doing spot pavement repair in South Park over the next week in preparation for the South Park Bridge closure.

The repair work will be on the arterial route in northern South Park, following Holden Street east from Highway 99, to 5th Ave S, to Kenyon Street, to 8th Ave S.  This work involves excavating below the asphalt and is much more in-depth than normal pothole repair.  It should decrease the likelihood of future potholes in these areas.

The work is scheduled to begin right away and finish by June 30th; traffic will be reduced to one shared lane for both directions.

If you have questions about this project, please contact John Arnesen with Seattle DOT:  (206) 684-8921,   (To report potholes on other streets, call the SDOT Pothole number:  684-ROAD.)
