If you’re driving to or from South Lake Union, most people exit and enter I-5 at Mercer Street — a ramp that’s heading for some serious streamlining in the not-too-distant future. Other car access points are Aurora Avenue, Westlake Avenue from downtown, or Eastlake and Westlake Avenues from the north.

In fact, there’s easy access to and from the neighborhood via I-5, I-90, Highway 99 and SR 520, while a drive to Sea-Tac airport can take as little as 20 minutes.

For those who prefer to do their driving with a bit of originality, there are electric car charging stations for residents and employees, ZipCars at seven locations in the neighborhood, and the city’s only motor scooter rentals at Westlake and Mercer.
