Rainier Valley North-South Neighborhood Greenway
Creating a network of family-friendly residential streets
Updated March 27, 2017
Thank you for providing feedback during the community outreach process for this project. Click here for the final greenway route. We’re now finalizing the design and we expect to start construction this summer.
Walking and biking improvements are coming to Rainier Valley! The Rainier Valley Neighborhood Greenway is a route over 6 miles long stretching all the way from Mount Baker to Rainier Beach. The route includes small improvements like crosswalks, curb ramps, speed humps, stop signs, and pavement repairs that go a long way to make walking and biking around the neighborhood easier.
Since 2014, we’ve been gathering community input on the greenway route to select streets that aren’t too steep and connect people to neighborhood destinations like light rail, parks, grocery stores, schools, and more. Now we are working to finalize the design and we plan to start construction this summer.

Our anticipated schedule is below, but it may change depending on weather and coordination with nearby projects.
This project is funded by the 9-year Levy to Move Seattle, approved by voters in 2015. Learn more about the levy at www.seattle.gov/LevytoMoveSeattle.
