We are a group of Seattle residents and volunteers advancing the concept of lidding Interstate 5 citywide for parks, schools, affordable housing, and other important public uses. We are sponsored by the Seattle Parks Foundation, a philanthropy-based organization that encourages public-sector investment and private-sector giving to help create, activate, and care for public spaces throughout Seattle.
We manage the campaign on a daily basis and are the driving force behind the Lid I-5 movement.
