Dinner Meeting

The Elliott Bay Seawall, which runs from Washington Street to Broad Street along the waterfront, was built between 1916 and 1934 and has deteriorated significantly since it was constructed. While the City of Seattle has committed over $3 million to temporary repairs of the seawall since the 2001 Nisqually Earthquake, the seawall is a public safety issue that must be replaced. The need to replace the seawall presents the City of Seattle with an opportunity to enhance the critical marine habitat along the shoreline and reconnect people to the water while providing the structural support for a new waterfront.

Jennifer Wieland, Project Manager for the Elliott Bay Seawall Project will discuss the history and background of the Elliott Bay Seawall Project and address habitat research, education and restoration opportunities associated with replacing the aging seawall.
