Central Area Neighborhood Greenway
Neighborhood greenways are safer, calm residential streets for you, your family and neighbors. They are built on streets with low car volumes and speeds. Greenways can provide access to schools, trails, parks, transit, and neighborhood businesses. Greenways 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.
23rd Avenue is a heavily trafficked transportation corridor. As part of SDOT’s 23rd Avenue Corridor Improvement Project, bike facilities will not be accommodated on the modified 23rd Avenue. As an alternative, SDOT will build a neighborhood greenway near this busy arterial to provide a more comfortable environment for people to walk, run, and bike.
For Phase 1 of the greenway (between S. Jackson and E. John streets), SDOT evaluated four potential routes on the east and west sides of 23rd Avenue for the greenway. With the help of community input, a combination of the previously reviewed routes was ultimately chosen. This “hybrid” route offers the best features of the considered routes and avoids many of the potential problems.
The Phase 1 hybrid route will run from S. Jackson St. north on 25th/26th avenues. It will turn west at E. Columbia Street, providing a new signalized crossing for bikes and pedestrians. Then the route will go up 22nd Avenue to E. Madison Street, where it will cross over to 21st Avenue and continue north to E. John St.
Potential features of the greenway include:
The Central Area Neighborhood Greenway will be implemented in phases. Phase 1 is currently in design and will be installed in the fall of 2014. Route options for Phase 2 and Phase 3 (the south and north ends of the greenway, respectively) are now being evaluated.
