Little Brook Sidewalks

Updated: February 7, 2023

What’s happening now?

Thank you to all who participated in the community prioritization process for this Neighborhood Street Fund project! We completed the new sidewalk on 32nd Ave NE in 2022 and plan to complete the new painted walkway on the north side of NE 143rd St in 2023.

Project Overview

Little Brook is a rapidly growing neighborhood lacking sidewalks at key locations. This project will improve walkability by constructing new sidewalks and walkways on 32nd Ave NE and NE 143rd St to fill gaps in the sidewalk network and connect people walking to transit, businesses, and community destinations.

The project will provide a safer, more comfortable, and more accessible route for walking and rolling along these streets while helping to improve drainage and slow down driver speeds on residential streets.


With our city growing, we have to accommodate all modes of travel (walking, biking, driving, and transit) and provide safe ways to do so. The current parking configuration will be changed to parallel to make room for the new sidewalks and walkways. 


This project will happen in two phases. Phase One (Installation of sidewalks and walkways along 32nd Ave NE) will begin as soon as late May. Phase Two (Painted walkways on 143rd) will begin after the completion of Phase One. We will share updates as they are available. Construction is expected to last for 3-4 months.

Project Background

In 2019, the Little Brook Sidewalks project was one of 15 projects selected by the Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee to be funded through SDOT’s Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) Program. The project, located on 32nd Ave NE and NE 143rd St in Little Brook, aims to improve walkability in Little Brook through the construction of new sidewalk and walkway improvements.
