Elliott Bay Seawall – APWA Project of the Year

Parsons has announced that the Washington Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) recently named the Elliott Bay Seawall project the 2017 Project of the Year in the Disaster or Emergency Construction/Repair category for a project valued at more than $75 million.

Parsons is the prime consultant on the Elliott Bay Seawall that stretches 1.5 miles along the downtown Seattle waterfront. The corporation provides overall program management and serves as the engineer of record, delivering design and construction support services to the project team.

With the original 75-year-old Seattle seawall at risk for collapse in an earthquake, the new Elliott Bay Seawall will be seismically resistant and protect the city’s downtown waterfront from wind-driven waves and the erosive tidal forces of Puget Sound and Elliott Bay.

It will support and protect State Route 99, rail lines, the ferry terminal and major public and private utilities, including power for downtown Seattle and the western seaboard, according to the Parsons’ announcement.
