May 21, 2020

What's happening now? 

We're in the early design phase of this project which will install new sidewalks along Greenwood Ave N. between N. 117th St and N. 130th St.

We'll be in touch this spring with individual property owners and residents about specific property impacts.

Project Overview

We're installing new sidewalks along Greenwood Ave N between N 117th St and N 130th St. Construction is expected to start as early as spring 2021. 

Greenwood Ave is lined with homes, apartments, condominiums and businesses, while also being a frequently used bus route.   The segment of Greenwood between N 117th St and N 130th St in Broadview has been a longstanding priority for a new sidewalk construction.

These new sidewalks will fill critical gaps and help connect residents to frequent transit services, schools, and other neighborhood destinations. These improvements will help achieve Seattle's Vision Zero goal to end all traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. 

  Particularly along Greenwood Ave N, the Broadview community has experienced flooding issues as well as underinvestment in pedestrian infrastructure. With this project we plan to perform spot natural drainage treatments, which will enhance water quality and drainage in this area.  

Project Background

Since 2016 we've been working to install sidewalks along Greenwood Ave N between N 92nd St and N 145th St. In addition to new sidewalk, we've added curbs, parking strips, pedestrian signal improvements, new traffic signals and Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps. This final segment on Greenwood from 117th - 130th will complete the sidewalks on this important corridor and enhance pedestrian safety for everyone.
