Rainier Valley Greenway

What's happening now

We're creating a network of family-friendly residential streets for people walking and biking to connect the CID, Little Saigon, and Judkins Park neighborhoods.

We developed the most promising route based on what we heard, citywide transportation plans, and traffic data. View the map below to explore recommendations and take our online survey and to share your thoughts.

We’ll be mailing information and attending events throughout the summer to continue gathering feedback. Sign up for email updates here. We’ll share project information and opportunities to stay involved as we move from planning to design to construction.

Project Overview

What's a Neighborhood Greenway?

Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, and neighbors. We make people walking and biking the priority. Neighborhood greenways can include:

  • 20 mph speed limit signs
  • speed humps to calm traffic
  • stop signs for side streets crossing the greenway
  • signs and pavement markings to help people find their way
  • easier crossings of busy streets with crosswalks, flashing beacons, or traffic signals

We're engaging with people in the CID, Little Saigon, and Judkins Park communities to help us design a neighborhood greenway that connects residents with schools, restaurants, parks, shopping, and the greater transportation network, including Union Street Station. The new neighborhood greenway will bring affordable, active transportation options for all ages and abilities.

We are coordinating with the Little Saigon Streetscape planning effort, Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF), Safe Routes to School and other local projects.

One result is we'll be able to enhance the crossing at S Jackson Street to the Central Park Trail. In the early 1990's neighbors planned and advocated for this trail to help provide a connection between City parks in the Central District neighborhood. Read the materials in our project library to learn more about the history of the trail.
