West Seattle Junction area restricted parking zone goes into effect in early November
The Seattle Department of Transportation has followed through on their plan to institute Restricted Parking Zones in the streets around the West Seattle Junction by sending a notice to area residents that the zones will be established during the first two weeks of November.
The process began after SDOT received a request to evaluate residential streets near the West Seattle Junction for a for that purpose and they then completed numerous parking and access studies in the West Seattle Junction and Triangle areas and seeking feedback about area on-street parking.
New Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) 35 RPZ 35 signs will be installed on the orange-lined blocks shown in the map above.
These signs will limit vehicles without RPZ 35 permits to 2-hour parking, 7 AM – 6 PM, Monday – Saturday. All residents living within the orange-shaded area will be eligible to purchase RPZ 35 permits.
Vehicles displaying an RPZ 35 permit will be exempt from the 2-hour time limit on RPZ-signed blocks.
Permits are currently $65 per vehicle for a two-year cycle. One hang-tag guest permit is available per household.
A $10 low-income permit is available.
New Unpaid Time Limits
In addition to the new RPZ, SDOT is making other changes on a few commercial streets in the neighborhood:
New 2- and 4-hour time limits fronting commercial businesses.
Extension of unpaid time limits on California Ave SW from ending at 6 PM to ending at 8 PM.
Designated disabled spaces and a load zone to improve neighborhood access.
