What's a Neighborhood Greenway?

Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, and your neighbors. We make people walking and biking the priority. Neighborhood greenways can include:

  • Easier crossings of busy streets with crosswalks, flashing beacons, or traffic signals
  • Speed humps to calm traffic
  • 20 mph speed limit signs
  • Stop signs for side streets crossing the neighborhood greenway
  • Signs and pavement markings to help people find their way

    Funding

    These projects were funded by the 9-year Levy to Move Seattle, approved by voters in 2015. Funding also came from additional sources: 

    • The Neighborhood Street Fund program pays for transportation projects identified and prioritized by the community. Projects range from crossing improvements to creating unique public spaces. They're typically between $100,000 and $1 million.
    • The Safe Routes to School connections were paid for by a Washington State Department of Transportation Safe Routes to School grant.

    Schedule

    The North Seattle Neighborhood Greenway & School Safety Project and associated Neighborhood Street Fund projects began construction in 2017 and were completed in early 2019:
