What's happening now? 

Thank to everyone who took the Reconnect West Seattle survey last summer. We heard that improvements are needed to the Neighborhood Greenway on 21st Ave SW that connects the West Seattle Bridge in the north with SW Dawson St in the south.

The Delridge-Highland Park Neighborhood Greenway on 21st Ave SW is important and we want to make it better! Share your ideas on our survey and let us know what improvements are most needed.

We're open to lots of ideas, but some things we think could be useful include:

  • New signs
  • Ideas to reduce car speeds
  • "Sharrow" pavement markings
  • Pedestrian lighting
  • Public art 

Background

The Delridge-Highland Park Neighborhood Greenway provides a safer, calmer residential street for you, your family, and neighbors. We make people walking and biking the priority. This greenway connects Highland Park, Delridge, and Pigeon Point neighborhoods, and includes:

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

This greenway helps:

  • Create safe pathways for students to walk to school
  • Strengthen communities around safer streets
  • Create neighborhood placemaking
  • Connect you and your neighbors to popular destinations such as schools, parks, business districts, and the city-wide bicycle network
  • Provide alternative options of getting around your neighborhood by walking or biking
