Alki Keep Moving Street

Updated April 2021

What's Happening Now?

We are beginning an extensive outreach process to hear from more voices, learn what the community thinks of this Keep Moving Street as it is today, and understand what the community wants the street to look like in the future. 

More details will be available on this page in coming weeks as we develop options for what the future could look like for this Keep Moving Street.   

About this project 

In April 2020, we implemented a "Keep Moving Street" on Beach Drive SW and Alki Avenue SW from the north end of 63rd Ave SW to the south end of 63rd Ave SW. A map of the Keep Moving Street is shown below.

Keep Moving Streets were opened in coordination with the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation as part of the City of Seattle's COVID-19 response. They are located adjacent to parks and popular outdoor destinations, like Constellation Park on Alki Point, and were part of the City of Seattle's response to support social distancing and safer ways for getting to popular destinations.

  • People driving who need to get to homes and destinations along Keep Moving Streets are still able to drive on these streets. Drivers should use extra caution and yield to people.

  • People enjoying the street should be mindful of drivers trying to get to homes and destinations as well.

The Alki Keep Moving Street is different than Stay Healthy Streets, which were installed on existing Neighborhood Greenways. For a street to become a Neighborhood Greenway, it would have previously been through a public input process to prioritize the street for people biking, walking, and rolling, and have features like speed humps, pedestrian crossing signals, and directional signs. 

While other Keep Moving Streets were installed on busy arterial streets, Alki Point is a neighborhood street that is shown in the Bike Master Plan as a future route for a Neighborhood Greenway. Therefore, we are listening to the public support for permanent changes in this location and will be launching an outreach process.

Community Outreach

Since the Alki Point Keep Moving Street opened, we have heard from many residents that they would like to see it stay in some form to keep providing space for people to walk, bike, roll, and play. Data shows us the Alki Keep Moving Street also has the highest usage among any Keep Moving Street and Stay Healthy Street.

We are beginning an extensive outreach process to hear from more voices, learn what the community thinks of this Keep Moving Street as it is today, and understand what the community wants the street to look like in the future. 

More details will be available on this page in coming weeks as we develop options for what the future could look like for this Keep Moving Street.
