Rainier Neighborhood Greenway
Creating a network of family-friendly residential streets
June 2, 2014
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:
Neighborhood greenways are not car free zones, do not add bike lanes and there are minimal if any on-street parking impacts.
Join the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) on Monday, June 2 to talk about a neighborhood greenway in Rainier Valley. We’re studying an east-west route in the area of S Myrtle and S Willow streets from John C. Little, Sr. Park to Seward Park Avenue S. We want to hear from the people who live, work, shop and play along these streets.
This is the first of two public meetings. The first meeting shares traffic data and helps SDOT staff understand where people want to walk and bike and barriers to doing so. At the second meeting we share the results of technical analysis and public comment and the most promising route with recommended safety improvements.
This project is locally funded by the nine-year voter approved Bridging the Gap Levy.
