THANK YOU RAINIER VALLEY FOR HELPING US MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

This summer the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will begin construction of a neighborhood greenway on: 

  • 37th Avenue S between the Chief Sealth Trail/John C. Little, SR. Park and S Willow Street 
  • S Willow Street between 37th and 46th Avenue S
  • 46th Avenue S between S Willow and S  Holly Street
  • S Holly Street between 46th Avenue S and 52nd Ave S
  • S Morgan Street between 52nd and 57th Avenue S to Martha Washington Park

These improvements will include speed humps approximately every block, stops signs, wayfinding signs, pavement markings, and reducing the speed limit from 25 MPH to 20 MPH, as well as pavement and sidewalk repairs throughout the corridor.

Neighborhood greenway design elements

Residents adjacent to construction areas will be notified in advance. Construction activities may require some temporary parking restrictions as SDOT crews complete the work tasks.
Neighborhood greenways are residential streets that are safer and more family-friendly for people walking and biking. They improve the experience for people of all ages and abilities by reducing car speeds; minimizing cut-through traffic; and enhancing crossings of busy streets.

On streets with low car volumes and speeds a greenway can:

  • Improve safety
  • Help people cross busy streets
  • Discourage cut-through traffic
  • Protect the residential character of our neighborhoods
  • Keep speeds low
  • Get people where they want to go like parks, schools, shops and restaurants

Project Funding

This project is locally funded by the nine-year voter approved Bridging the Gap Levy.
