No More Street Restoration Services for Side Sewer Contractors

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is discontinuing street restoration services for side sewer contractors.

SDOT’s Maintenance Operations’ workload has grown significantly in the past few years. SDOT has been tasked with delivering more lane-miles of paving, square feet of sidewalk, and curb ramps than ever before. Because SDOT can no longer provide adequate service and timely delivery of restorations, they will not accept requests for work through the SDCI permitting process. This will go into effect February 1, 2018.


If you have special circumstances, SDOT will consider requests for restoration. Contact Ross Aitken in advance of the work to confirm that SDOT can meet your schedule and to confirm full payment of invoices before starting work. Ross Aitken can be reached at (206) 233-7031 or
