Safe Routes to School: Greenwood Elementary School
Last Updated: October 26, 2015
Parents and neighbors of Greenwood Elementary School, supported by the Ballard Neighborhood Greenways group, started this Safe Routes to School project. The project is located at the intersection of NW 80th St and 1st Ave NW. Improvements include a new curb bulb, curb ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), marked crosswalks, and rectangular rapid flashing beacons to make the crossing safer and more comfortable for families walking and biking to school. The project also supported campaigns to educate and encourage kids to safely walk and bike to school.
Construction began Monday, August 10 and finished Friday, September 18.
A Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) grant funded education and encouragement aspects of the project. Construction is partially funded by WSDOT. SDOT's local Safe Routes to School program, which is funded by the school speed zone enforcement program, covered the remaining cost.
