Bridging the Gap Neighborhood Street Fund Program

The Neighborhood Street Fund Program pays for neighborhood transportation projects which are identified and prioritized by the community itself. The funds for this program come from the Bridging the Gap (BTG) transportation levy passed by voters in November 2006 which expires in 2015.

The Bridging the Gap Oversight Committee has completed its review of the 38 projects selected by Seattle's 13 Neighborhood District Councils for evaluation. The following 12 projects were approved by the Mayor and City Council for funding:
