West Seattle BRT Transit Priority Corridor Improvement

Location: Seattle, WA
Client: City of Seattle

Transit Priority Corridors play a key role in Seattle’s transportation system, connecting high-density neighborhoods and supporting sustainable growth. Otak was selected to provide survey services through final design. Services included survey and mapping of station sites to Seattle Department of Transportation standards. Otak provided resolution of right-of-way margins and parcel lines at each station site. Many of the right-of-ways had variable widths, and required research of deeds and survey records. Otak prepared legal descriptions and exhibits for station site easements and right-of-way acquisitions, and surveyed channelization and edge of pavement to design two miles of Business Access and Transit lanes.
