Street grid layout

Most streets in Seattle run either north-south or east-west, except the old town. The old town of Seattle is bounded by Elliott Bay on the west, Yesler Way on the south, Denny Way on the north, and Broadway on the east, which encompasses all of Downtown, Belltown, the Denny Regrade, and parts of Pioneer Square and First Hill. The grid is oriented 32 degrees west of north from Yesler Way north to Stewart Street from Alaskan Way east to 3rd Avenue, Olive Way from 3rd Avenue east to 7th Avenue, and to Howell Street from 7th Avenue east to Denny Way. North of there, but south of Denny Way, the grid is oriented 49 degrees west of north.[1] Elliott Bay and the Seattle waterfront, looking north from the Pacific Coast Co. ...

Origins

This grid pattern is the result of a disagreement between David Swinson "Doc" Maynard, whose land claim lay south of Yesler Way, and Arthur A. Denny and Carson D. Boren, whose land claims lay to the north (with Henry Yesler and his mill soon brought in between):[2] Maynard favored a grid based on the cardinal directions, while Denny and Boren preferred that their (mostly flat, mostly wet) streets follow the Elliott Bay shoreline. Denny and Boren prevailed in what would become the central business district, but it was Maynard's grid that ended up being extended throughout the city.[2][3] In fact, the grid continues out into most of unincorporated King County. Even many incorporated cities around Seattle use the same system, at least in part, including all the cities south of Seattle and west of Kent, plus Bellevue, Redmond, Shoreline and Kirkland.[1] Pioneer and doctor David Swinson Doc Maynard (1808 - March 13, 1873) settled in Seattle when it was still a small village called Duwamps. ...

Seattle originated during and after a conquest, and grew to adolescence in a largely freebooter society. If laws today had existed back then, city founders would have gone into other lines of work.[2] Early European settlers established widely scattered home sites on the surrounding hills and as these communities grew into neighborhoods and towns, the transportation and street naming problems that developed have plagued Seattle ever since.[4] Conurbations tend to have grown up organically from what became once-autonomous towns or around such as trolley stops in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The street layout of Seattle is of a piece.[1][3] A conurbation is an urban area comprising a number of cities, towns and villages which, through population growth and expansion, have physically merged to form one continuous built up area. ...


"Doc" Maynard, the putative town drunk, successfully nurtured (just south of the old town) what later grew into the dynamic little city of the 19th century, engineered what pattern could be made of the original rival surveys, and that semblance provided the basis for what order there is of metropolitan streets today.[2][5] Metropolitan area in Western Tokyo as seen from Tokyo Tower A metropolitan area is a large population center consisting of a large city and its adjacent zone of influence, or of several neighboring cities or towns and adjoining areas, with one or more large cities serving as its hub or...


Directionals

Directionals (e.g., N, NE) are systematized in Seattle, as are, to a lesser degree, street types (e.g., avenue, street). As a rule, only streets that run more or less east-west (or, in the central business district, northeast-southwest) can be called "street", and only streets that run more or less north-south (or, in the central business district, northwest-southeast) can be called "avenue." However, a "road", "boulevard", "way", or thoroughfare with any other type designation may run in any direction. The boundaries of the Central District from which street numbering would start were to be called "Ways."

A city-centre street in Frankfurt, Germany A residential street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA A street is a public thoroughfare in the built environment. ... This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


Seattle is divided into ten sections for the purpose of determining which directionals are to be used.

  1. "streets" and other east-west thoroughfares are prefixed by the directional
  2. "avenues" and other north-south thoroughfares are suffixed by the directional
  3. with a few exceptions, the same directional is used as both prefix and suffix within each section.

North of the Lake Washington Ship Canal are the following sections: west of 1st Avenue NW, the NW section; between 1st Avenue NW and 1st Avenue NE, the N section; east of 1st Avenue NE, the NE section.

Chittenden Locks, and Shilshole Bay. ... Compass rose with north highlighted and at top Look up North in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


South of the canal but north of Denny Way are the following sections: west of Queen Anne Avenue N, the W section; between Queen Anne Avenue N and Eastlake Avenue E, a section in which avenues are suffixed N and in which streets have no prefix; east of Eastlake Avenue E, the E section.

The Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST, internally called HT-7U) is a project being undertaken to construct an experimental superconducting tokamak magnetic fusion energy reactor in Hefei, the capital city of Anhui Province, in eastern China. ...


South of Denny Way but north of Yesler Way are two sections: east of Broadway from Yesler Way north to Union Street, north of Union Street from Broadway west to Minor Avenue, east of Minor Avenue from Union Street north to Pike Street, and east of Melrose Avenue from Pike Street north to Denny Way, streets are prefixed E and avenues have no suffix; to the west this border, no directionals are used.


South of Yesler Way are two sections: east of the waterfront and, further south, 1st Avenue S, the S section; and west of 1st Avenue S, the SW section. There is no SE section within the Seattle city limits. However, there is a southeast section outside of Seattle, which encompasses all of Mercer Island, parts of Renton[6] and Bellevue, and other locations within the county. A compass rose with South highlighted South is most commonly a noun, adjective, or adverb indicating direction or geography. ...

Location of Renton in King County and Washington Coordinates: County King  - Mayor Kathy Keolker Area    - City 44. ...


Addressing

Addressing in Seattle (and throughout King County) keeps a uniform numbering plan. On streets that run north and south, odd numbered addresses are on the west side of the street with even to the east. On streets that run east and west, odd numbered addresses are on the south side of the street, with even numbered addresses to the north. The address is based on its location relative to the grid (not relative to the location of the beginning of road) with the last two digits consecutively incrementing with the grid and the leading digits designating the location on the grid.[1]


For example, the name 32nd Avenue NE applies to several physically discontinuous street segments running along approximately the same line of the grid. One of these segments runs from NE 75th Street to NE 80th Street, crossed only by NE 77th Street; its two blocks are the 7500 block and the 7700 block.


The twelve streets in the central business district are named as six first-letter pairs (south to north): Jefferson, James, Cherry, Columbia, Marion, Madison, Spring, Seneca, University, Union, Pike, Pine. One way to remember the order of the street pairs is with the mnemonic "Jesus Christ Made Seattle Under Protest" [1], (JCMSUP). Each pair itself is in reverse-alphabetical order, except the second pair and last pair. Wikiquote has a collection of quotations related to: English mnemonics A mnemonic (pronounced in Received Pronunciation) is a memory aid, and most serve an educational purpose. ...


Only one street, Madison Street, runs uninterrupted from the salt water of Puget Sound in the west to the fresh water of Lake Washington in the east. The unusual orientation and contiguous nature of this street is due to the former presence of a cable car along this route (along with Yesler Way, Jackson Street, Queen Anne Avenue, and 1st Avenue-2nd Avenue).[7] No street, excluding Interstate 5 and Washington State Route 99—both freeways in whole or in part—runs without interruption from the northern to the southern city limits. This is largely the result of Seattle's topography. Split by the Duwamish River and the Lake Washington Ship Canal, containing four lakes within the city limits, and boasting deep ravines and at least seven hills[8] there are few more-or-less straight routes where such a road could reasonably be built, even allowing for the short bridge or two.

Arterials defined

The City defines Principal, Minor and Collector arterials.

  • Principal arterials serve as the principal route for the movement of traffic through the City. These connect interstate freeways to major activity centers, to minor and collector arterial streets and directly to destinations, as well as interneighborhood traffic.
  • Minor arterials are generally located on neighborhood boundaries except when necessary to provide adequate service to traffic generators located within neighborhoods.
  • Collector arterials are typically located within neighborhood boundaries and serve small group of stores, schools, small apartment complexes, and residential land uses.
  • (Access Streets are defined as residential and commercial side streets.)[9]

Visiting Seattle - Seattle 101, A Guide for Travelers and Tourists (1522 words)
All of downtown Seattle is easily accessible from the waterfront, a mile-and-a-half north/south stretch along the west side of the city, facing Elliott Bay, which is part of Puget Sound.
Seattle is a fairly large city, with a number of commuters driving in and out of the downtown core at the usual commute times, Monday through Friday.
As a result, while the city street system is generally laid out in a grid pattern, it is full of streets that wind and curve and run at arbitrary angles to one another.
