Safer, calmer residential streets

March 22, 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 5.

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

 

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.

Overview

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.
