High Priority Areas

The High Priority Areas Map identifies locations in Seattle where people need to be able to walk the most. These locations are shown as the darker orange areas on the map. The map combines the information from the Potential Pedestrian Demand, Equity, and Corridor Function Maps according to a weighted approach as shown here.

  • The Potential Pedestrian Demand Map identifies existing destinations that are likely to generate pedestrian traffic and incorporates estimates of where people will be living and working in the future.
  • The Equity Map identifies areas where pedestrian improvements will serve community residents with the greatest needs.
  • The Corridor Function Map prioritizes Seattle’s streets based on their character and role in the transportation network.

Please review the Methodology Appendix for more detailed information on the prioritized areas and the components of this analysis.
