Port of Seattle signs $9 million Memo of Understanding to help offset cost of West Seattle Bridge repairs

$46.7 million now secured toward the $175 million called for to repair both West Seattle bridges

information from the Port of Seattle

The Port of Seattle Commission approved a $9 million memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the City of Seattle to join with other federal and local agencies to provide funding for the West Seattle Bridge program. Funding will aid the reopening of the West Seattle Bridge in mid-2022 and improving the Spokane Street Swing Bridge, as well. This partnership, formalized in this MOU, will ensure good access to the Port’s cargo terminals, promote freight mobility in the harbor, and relieve the traffic impacts on West Seattle and Duwamish Valley neighborhoods.

Editors Note: That means that so far $46.7 million has been secured of the total $175 million needed to effect repairs on both the high rise and lower West Seattle Bridge.
