Madison Bus Rapid Transit

Posted: October 19, 2021

The Seattle Department of Transportation will be starting construction on the Madison Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line shortly. The BRT will run along Madison Street from First Ave. to Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, creating a dedicated bus lane for most of the route, as well as new bus stops, sidewalks, utilities and other streetscape improvements. Work is expected to begin this month at 15th and Madison and progress eastward while another sector of work will begin downtown and make its way toward SU in the coming months. Initial impacts adjacent to campus will be limited, but may include utility investigations, street tree removal, noise and/or traffic impacts. Visit SDOT for additional information. Contact Director of Facilities Planning and Real Estate Nathan Gregory, at, with any questions or concerns about impacts to SU.
