Safer, calmer residential streets

April 18, 2017

What's happening now?

Phases 1, 2, and 3 of the Central Area Neighborhood Greenway are complete! This year, we'll conduct an evaluation to see how the new greenway is working.

We're now working on better connecting the greenway to other family friendly routes. Click here to complete our survey about connecting the north end of the greenway, and check out this fact sheet to learn more. The survey will be open until May 19.

Click this fact sheet to learn more about better connecting the south end of the greenway in Rainier Valley.

We're also working on better connecting the greenway where it intersects with other greenways:

Come to our drop-in session! We're partnering with Seattle Parks and Rec and other SDOT projects to host a Montlake Neighborhood Transportation Project drop-in session:

Tuesday, May 9
5-6:30 PM (stop by anytime)
Montlake Community Center

We'll have snacks and activities for kids! Check out the mailer for details.


What are neighborhood greenways?

Neighborhood greenways are residential streets made safer and calmer for people of all ages and abilities to walk and bike. Small improvements to streets with already low car volumes and speeds add up to make a big difference.

Greenways can provide access to schools, trails, parks, transit, and neighborhood businesses. They can be especially beneficial for families, children and seniors who might find these routes more comfortable than busier nearby streets. Visit our neighborhood greenways home page to learn more.


The Central Area Neighborhood Greenway runs on residential streets adjacent to 23rd Ave between E Roanoke Street on the north end and Rainier Ave S on the south end. We selected the route with the help of extensive community input gathered at open houses, drop-in sessions, presentations, and briefings. The full route is shown on the map below.

The Central Area Neighborhood Greenway was implemented in phases. Phase 1 reached substantial completion in September 2015. Phase 2 (the south end) and Phase 3 (the north endwere completed in spring 2016.
