Project update January 19, 2016

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 also working on better connecting the greenway to other walking and biking routes. This includes a new greenway on E Columbia St and connections on the north and south ends.

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 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. Local access to homes along neighborhood greenways is always preserved, and there are usually minimal, if any, changes to on-street parking. Visit our neighborhood greenways home page to learn more.

Project Description

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.
