Delridge-Highland Park Neighborhood Greenway
Creating a network of family-friendly residential streets
Last updated: December 6, 2016
Neighborhood greenways are not car-free zones; they do not add bike lanes; and there are minimal, if any, on-street parking impacts. Learn more about greenways here.
The greenway runs north-south, connecting White Center to the West Seattle Bridge trail. The greenway route generally runs along 17th Avenue SW in the south and 21st Avenue SW in the north.
The greenway route was selected based on various factors, including its low car volumes, speeds and collisions, its road grade (or steepness), and input we heard from the community.
SDOT is working with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) to design curb extensions with natural drainage systems along 17th Avenue SW, between SW Henderson Street and SW Kenyon Street. To learn more about SPU's Delridge Natural Drainage Systems project, check out their webpage.

The project reached final design and construction will begin on August 24 and last for approximately six months.
