We are constructing several projects in your neighborhood to make it safer and more comfortable to walk and bike near James Baldwin Elementary (formerly Northgate Elementary) and Ingraham High School.

Neighborhood Greenway Project Construction is currently underway with completion planned in 2024. The crossing signal project at Ashworth Ave N & N 130th St was completed in August 2023. Work on the marked crosswalk at Ashworth Ave N & N 125th St was completed in December 2023. Installation of new pedestrian lighting has been delayed.

The Ashworth Ave N Neighborhood Greenway will enhance safe access for students walking and biking to school. The selected route connects James Baldwin Elementary School and Ingraham High School along Ashworth Ave N and N 120th St.

Project Overview

The Ashworth Ave N Neighborhood Greenway connects residents to local schools, parks, and businesses as well as the citywide transportation network. The new neighborhood greenway will bring affordable, active transportation options for people of all ages and abilities. We will be constructing several projects in your neighborhood. These projects will improve the network connection and keep walking and biking safe near James Baldwin Elementary (formerly Northgate Elementary School) and Ingraham High School. Below is a list of completed and upcoming projects in your neighborhood, along with their estimated start dates for construction.

What's a Neighborhood Greenway?

Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, and neighbors. We make people walking and biking the priority.

Child biking

Neighborhood greenways can include:

  • easier crossings of busy streets with crosswalks, flashing beacons, or traffic signals
  • speed humps to calm traffic
  • stop signs for side streets crossing the neighborhood greenway
  • signs and pavement markings to help people find their way
