Elements of a Walkable Street

The quality and location of Seattle’s existing pedestrian facilities and other conditions that affect the pedestrian experience are important factors in achieving the Pedestrian Master Plan goals of safety, equity, vibrancy, and health.

The plan completed two citywide condition assessments, Along the Roadway and Across the Roadway, in order to better understand baseline conditions in 2008, as well as to identify future opportunities for improvement. These assessments were done using existing City of Seattle data. Some of the roadway elements used in these assessments are shown here. Detailed information about roadway elements and the supporting analysis is available in Along and Across the Roadway.
