High Point Healthy Street

Updated January 23, 2024

What's Happening Now?

We are excited to announce that the permanent High Point Healthy Street will be installed this spring 2024! The existing temporary signs will be replaced with permanent signs supported by either concrete sign bases or planters. 

Permanent Healthy Street Signs

Example of permanent Healthy Street sign base and planter

For permanent Healthy Street locations, neighbors can elect to replace the standard concrete sign base with planters. SDOT will install planters at Healthy Street intersections based on the requests we receive from neighbors. Neighbors who request planters are responsible for maintaining the planter after installation. For more information about adopting planters and planter maintenance, visit the Healthy Street Planters webpage.

Upgraded Temporary Sign Bases

This winter, while we get ready for installation next spring, we have been upgrading the temporary sign bases at key intersections along the High Point Healthy Street to more durable concrete cylinders. The existing temporary signage has not been durable enough to withstand winter traffic conditions and as a result, our crews were overwhelmed last year with numerous daily requests to repair and replace signage all over the city. These temporary sign bases will be replaced when permanent planter boxes and concrete sign bases are installed.

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.
