Help us continue to improve our website!

 By Brooke Carlson

More than a year has passed since we launched our long-time-coming redesigned website. Before November 2021, it had been more than 15 years since the site had been majorly updated.

Our overarching goal in redesigning the website was to create a more usable platform than before – one that is now mobile-friendly, accessible for all audiences and less overwhelming to navigate.

Now that you’ve had some time to get used to it, let us know how we’re doing! Take 10 minutes to complete the 2023 WSDOT Web Survey.

When we launched the website in 2021, we made a commitment to the continual improvement of our digital products. In other words – we’re going to keep trying to make the website a better product for you. Here are just a few of many changes we’ve already made based on user feedback:

  • Updated our website search so you can search by city or keyword and get a direct link to the area on a map, as well as camera previews
  • Changed the color scheme of the traffic flow on the real-time map to make it accessible for colorblind users
  • Added a new indicator for closed roads on the real-time map so you can see exactly where closure points start and end

Your feedback will help us guide priorities for the upcoming web updates, so share your thoughts and be specific where possible.

The survey will be open until Feb. 1, 2023.
