A healthy, safe network of streets for people linking every part of Seattle will take several years to complete. In fact, we estimate a complete Seattle system of safe healthy streets will require about 10 years to fully build out with a mix of cycletracks, greenways, woonerfs, buffered bike lanes (YouTube), sidewalks with curb ramps, as well as great ways to get across busy streets with toucan crossings, traffic islands, speed bumps, and more.
Every year, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways Organizers submit their top priority routes and intersection crossings for development to the City of Seattle. These priorities have strong existing community support and link us to places we want to go.
