Growing the network

Last updated: July 11, 2017

Project Overview

The City of Seattle has a goal of building 250 miles of connected neighborhood greenways. Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, and neighbors. We make people walking and biking the priority. Neighborhood greenways can include:

  • 20 mph speed limit signs
  • speed humps to calm traffic
  • stop signs for side streets crossing the neighborhood greenway
  • signs and pavement markings to help people find their way
  • easier crossings of busy streets with crosswalks, flashing beacons, or traffic signals

Neighborhood greenways are a combination of small improvements that make residential streets safer and calmer for people of all ages and abilities. They lay the foundation for great community building opportunities like adding lending libraries, hosting work parties to keep sidewalks walkable and painting intersection murals.

This web page shares SDOT’s 2014 work plan and our process for delivering neighborhood greenways. Schedules and projects are subject to change.

Stay tuned for an updated map that shares all the neighborhood greenways we’ve already done, those currently in progress, and the near-term plan to create a network.

The multi-year work plan will continue to evolve as we know more about projects and resources.


Majority of these projects will be funded by the 9-year Levy to Move Seattle, approved by voters in 2015. Learn more about the levy at


We are committed to building a productive, inclusive, and collaborative relationship with all who live, work, or travel in the project area. Please contact us with any questions.
