Who Are We?

Montlake Greenways is a group of neighbors like you who are working to make their streets safer and more comfortable for everybody.

Area: The Montlake Greenways effort includes the areas bounded by North Capitol Hill (Interlaken), I5 to the west, Lake Washington Blvd to the East and the water to the north. It’s basically the Montlake Elementary school district.

Mission: The currently under served group that most needs Neighborhood Greenways in the Montlake area is the 70% of the population who would like to walk or bike to local destinations but does not feel safe doing so given the safety limitations of the current public right of way infrastructure.

Our Victories

  • We have worked extensively to ensure the SR-520 interchange and Portage Bay Bridge can be crossed comfortably and safely by people of all ages and abilities. And we have had significant success!
  • Crowd sourced mapping: We scouted and identified a crowd-sourced map of important walking and biking routes (see map below)

Proposed circulation plan for the communities around Portage Bay:
