Beacon Hill Stay Healthy Street

Updated October 12, 2022

What's Happening Now?

Thank you to everyone who emailed, joined us for a site walk, and took our online surveys. We are launching a request for art submissions for street murals at two locations along the permanent route: S Bayview Street and S Lander St. Stay tuned for more information!

We’re updating our Healthy Streets across Seattle based on the trends we’ve seen in terms of community use and public feedback. Our next steps will be:

  • Make some locations permanent Healthy Streets
  • Return some locations to neighborhood greenways, which they were prior to the pandemic
  • Further review some Healthy Streets and conduct more outreach to determine next steps. These locations will remain Healthy Streets until further notice. 

Please look at the below map to see what's changing in your neighborhood Healthy Street.

Program overview 

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.
