What's a Neighborhood Greenway?

Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer neighborhood streets for you, your family, and neighbors. We make people walking and biking the priority. Neighborhood greenways provide connections for people of all ages and abilities to walk and bike between their homes, jobs, and community destinations.

Neighborhood greenways can include:

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