High Point Healthy Street

Updated May 1, 2024

What's Happening Now?

As soon as May 1st we will start construction of the permanent installments for the High Point Healthy Street!

We will install permanent signage with a concrete block base and newly painted curb space around it at each intersection along the Healthy Street. At intersections where neighbors requested planters, we will install the permanent signage with a planter sign base. Unauthorized on-street parking located within 20 feet of the intersection will be removed for the permanent sign installation.

What to expect during construction:

Typical construction hours are weekdays, 7 AM to 5 PM, and may include weekend work.   
Other expected construction effects may include:  

  • Noise and vibration
  • Dust and debris 
  • Construction staging and parking impacts near the work sites
  • “No Parking” areas and other parking impacts
  • Crosswalk and sidewalk closures, with detours for people walking and biking
  • Roadway closures and detours for vehicle traffic  

Please note that the construction schedule may change due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e., weather, soil conditions, etc.). We encourage you to sign up for email updates to get the most updated information on construction.

As announced earlier this year, 34th Ave SW will become a permanent Healthy Street and the other streets will return to neighborhood greenway.

About this project 

We introduced Healthy Streets during the pandemic in 2020 as a way for Seattleites to get outside safely and stay active in local neighborhoods throughout the city. Healthy Streets are open for people walking, rolling, biking, and playing, and closed to pass-through traffic. 

Mural Project - Art in High Point!

The salmon art that High Point community members created has was installed on in March 2023. Thank you, High Point community, for your involvement in this project.

Each salmon is about 6 feet long and they “leap” along SW Graham St and 31st Ave SW. The salmon are in the middle of the street, so people can still drive on them and they won’t be covered by parked vehicles.
