Interurban to Green Lake Neighborhood Greenway Connection

Updated: December 13, 2019

What's Happening Now?

We're planning to install a decorative curb bulb at the intersection of Linden Ave N and N 83rd St. Let us know what you prefer by taking our survey here:

Nine color and pattern options for painting the curb bulb are available, including combinations of blue, pink, or red colors and hexagon, cobbles, or brick patterns.

Project Overview

The Interurban to Green Lake Neighborhood Greenway Connection will run along N 83rd St providing a vital link between the existing neighborhood greenway (Interurban North) on Fremont Ave N and the protected bike lanes on Green Lake Dr N. The neighborhood greenway connection will be constructed in coordination with the Aurora Ave N intersection improvements as soon as summer 2020.

A future connection is also planned to connect with the existing 1st Ave NW neighborhood greenway in coordination with a Vision Zero crossing improvement at Greenwood Ave N.

What's a Neighborhood Greenway?

Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, and neighbors. We make people walking and biking the priority. The new neighborhood greenway will bring affordable, active transportation options for all ages and abilities.

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, curb bulbs, flashing beacons, or traffic signals
