About the project

Railroad Way will provide a new pedestrian connection and gateway linking the waterfront to Pioneer Square and the Stadiums. Railroad Way will support local access and daily activity like any other city street, but it will also provide a flexible public space where people can gather and engage around stadium events. Railroad Way will feature a new plaza with furnishings and lighting, a widened sidewalk connecting large crowds and processions to 1st Avenue and the waterfront, and historic features like paving and remnants of the original rail tracks.

Railroad Way will be constructed by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) as part of their South Access project.
