Project Description

Seattle is building a network of neighborhood greenways. Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, neighbors and customers. On streets with low car volumes and speeds a greenway can:

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

Neighborhood greenways are not car free zones, do not add bike lanes and there are minimal if any on-street parking impacts.

In June SDOT hosted a public meeting and gathered valuable input on building an east-west neighborhood greenway in Rainier Valley from the John C. Little Sr. Park to Seward Park Avenue S. From the input  we received and the evaluation, we recommend 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 52nd Avenue S
  • 52nd Avenue S between S Willow and S Holly Street
  • S Holly Street between 52nd Avenue S and the Martha Washington Park / 57th Avenue S

The recommended improvements (shown on the map) include traffic calming, stops signs, wayfinding signs, sharrow pavement markings, reducing the speed limit from 25 MPH to 20 MPH and pavement and sidewalk repairs.
