South 200th Street Corridor Survey Closes Nov 30th

If you use South 200th Street to get around then this post applies to you!

The City of SeaTac is conducting a South 200th Street Corridor Study. During the first round of community interviews the following issues were identified:

  • Folks have a difficult time turning left off South 200th Street onto side streets or into residential driveways.
  • Lack of adequate space for pedestrians and bicyclists – narrow sidewalks and lack of bike lanes.
  • Lack of safe ways along the corridor to access transit (both light rail and buses).
  • Lack of vehicle and pedestrian lighting.
  • Concerns about how any changes to the corridor will affect congestion.
  • Concern about how changes can be made with existing ROW constraints
  • Speed and noise of traffic is a concern for residents along this route

In addition to the concerns above, this area will see additional change due to completion of the upcoming SR 509 extension and Federal Way Link Light Rail Extension. 

The purpose of this study is to ensure that South 200th Street meets the needs of all users (whether you walk, bike or drive) now and into the future. The study highlights some options to improve South 200th Street from Angle Lake Light Rail Station to the I-5 ramps. The options under consideration are intended to increase multi-modal travel and improve safety within this major arterial.

You can share your opinion on the different corridor options online at: —with the site letting you rank options in order of your preference. The survey closes on Nov. 30.

The answers collected will be compiled and used to determine corridor option preference recommendation along with traffic modeling, safety and other analysis. If you have questions about the possible corridor improvements and options or the survey itself please contact Project Manager David Tomporowski at
