Olympic Hills Neighborhood Greenway
Creating a network of family-friendly residential streets

Seattle is building a network of neighborhood greenways. Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, neighbors and customers. On streets with low car volumes and speeds a greenway can:
Neighborhood greenways are not car free zones, do not add bike lanes and there are minimal if any on-street parking impacts.
Last summer, SDOT hosted a public meeting and gathered input on building a neighborhood greenway in the Olympic Hills neighborhood. The input we received at the open house and through emails has had a positive influence on the project. Based on feedback and our evaluation we have concluded that the route and improvements shown on the map below would serve the neighborhood well. These enhancements complement the new green space being built at NE 133rd Street and the new sidewalk being installed along the south side of NE 130th Street.
