About this project 

Stay Healthy Streets are an important tool for Seattleites to get outside, travel to grocery stores, pharmacies, and local businesses, and get exercise. They make it possible for people to walk, roll, and bike in the street while staying 6 feet apart during the COVID-19 pandemic. Installed as part of our emergency response to the pandemic in 2020, they also provide an opportunity for you to consider how they might improve your community long-term.   

How were streets selected? 

Most Stay Healthy Streets were installed along Neighborhood Greenways, which have traffic calming like speed humps, improvements to make it easy to cross busy streets, and have gone through a community engagement process. These improvements were also in place along the Beacon Hill route, and so it was designated a Stay Healthy Street in June 2020 to provide additional space in Beacon Hill during the pandemic.

What is next?

We are collecting community input to help decide if the Stay Healthy Street you live on or near (see map below) should be made permanent or not. Changes to Beacon Hill Neighborhood Greenway could improve its ability to host outdoor potlucks and celebrations with your neighbors, art projects, sports, and traffic gardens along with travel and should support your community's values. We are also evaluating which engineering changes may help support Bell Street Park.
