Safe Routes to School: Dearborn Park Elementary
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) plans to construct safety and access improvements as early as 2017 near Dearborn Park Elementary along S Orcas St. This Safe Routes to School (SRTS) project also supports programs that educate and encourage kids to walk and bike safely to school.
SDOT is committed to making it safer and easier for kids, families, and neighbors to walk and bike in their neighborhoods. This will help achieve Seattle's Vision Zero to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030.
Please see our project fact sheet for more information.

We have reached final design and will be moving forward with construction as early as Spring 2017.
As we approach construction, our outreach team will work to raise awareness in the neighborhood and notify community groups and residents of construction timeline, sequencing, and impacts.
The SRTS program is funding project design as well as the education and encouragement programs. Project construction 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.
