Greenwood Sidewalk Project: N 117th – 130th St

July 26, 2021

What's happening now? 

We're nearing  the end of the design phase of this project which plans to install new sidewalks along Greenwood Ave N. between N 117th St and N 130th St.

We'll be in touch with individual property owners and residents later this summer about specific property impacts. Construction is expected to begin as soon as fall 2021.

Project Overview

We're planning to install new sidewalks along both sides of Greenwood Ave N between N 117th St and N 130th St. Construction is expected to start as early as fall 2021. 

Greenwood Ave is lined with homes, apartments, condominiums, and businesses, while also being a frequently used bus route.  The segment of Greenwood between N 117th St and N 130th St in Broadview has been a longstanding priority for a new sidewalk construction.

These new sidewalks will fill critical gaps and help connect residents to frequent transit services, schools, and other neighborhood destinations. These improvements will help achieve Seattle's Vision Zero goal to end all traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. 

Particularly along Greenwood Ave N, the Broadview community has experienced flooding issues as well as underinvestment in pedestrian infrastructure. With this project we plan to perform spot natural drainage treatments, which will enhance water quality and drainage in this area.  

Project Background

Since 2016 we've been working to install sidewalks along Greenwood Ave N between N 92nd St and N 145th St. In addition to new sidewalk, we've added curbs, planting strips, pedestrian signal improvements, new traffic signals and Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps.
