Ballard Neighborhood Greenways
Creating a network of family-friendly residential streets
MArch 25, 2014
Seattle is building a network of neighborhood greenways. Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, neighbors and customers. On streets with low car volumes and speeds a greenway can:
Neighborhood greenways are not car free zones, do not add bike lanes and there are minimal if any on-street parking impacts.
Last summer one was completed on NW 58th Street. This year we’re evaluating a north-south route in the area of 16th, 17th or 18th Avenues NW from Salmon Bay to Soundview Playfield. We will hold two public meetings to learn more from the people who live, work, shop and play in the area. The first meeting will share traffic data and help us understand where people want to walk and bike and barriers to doing so. At the second meeting we’ll share the results of technical analysis and public comment and the most promising route.
Here is a map of the existing route along NW 58th Street.
This project is locally funded by the nine-year voter approved Bridging the Gap Levy.
