Lid I-5 Civic Engagement Campaign

Lidding Interstate 5 to create new public land for parks, affordable housing, complete streets, and other uses in the city’s most populous neighborhoods

Project Description

The Lid I-5 Steering Committee is a group of volunteer Seattle residents who believe that socioeconomic factors have created the perfect opportunity to lid Interstate 5 in downtown and beyond. The current goal is to secure funding for a Seattle Lid Feasibility Study. The City of Seattle has offered to lead this study of lid constructability, financing, and design if funding can be secured. Over the long term, the results of the study will be critical to efforts to design and build lids over the freeway.

Let’s heal Seattle’s freeway scar with places for people.
