Previous
Next

All streets in Seattle should be walkable at the very basic level to encourage Seattle’s residents and visitors to explore their environment. A clear walkable zone is a horizontal and vertical space that is free of obstructions, fast-moving vehicular traffic, and other potential hazards.
