SDOT hosting community meetings for new east-west neighborhood greenway from Crown Hill to Northgate

January 31st, 2017 · Comments

Seattle Department of Transportation is hosting three community meetings to present its new east-west neighborhood greenway, the North Seattle Neighborhood Greenway & School Safety Project. The greenway will be built in 2018 and will connect Crown Hill, Greenwood, Licton Springs, and Northgate.

You can see a map of the route here.

Meetings are scheduled for:

  • 10-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, at Crown Hill Center, 9250 14th Ave. NW, and will focus on plans to get people safely across Holman Road NW and NW 92nd St. Coffee provided.
  • 4:30-6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9 at Lantern Brewing, 938 N. 95th St., and will focus on safely crossing Aurora Avenue North at North 92nd Street with a new crossing signal. All ages are welcome; soft drinks provided; beer available for purchase.
  • 10-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, at Monkey Business Preschool, 9728 Greenwood Ave. N. #B, and will focus on safely crossing Greenwood Avenue NW at NW 100th Street with a new crossing signal. Coffee provided.

The route emphasizes avoiding the steepest hills and prioritizes streets with lower vehicle speeds and volumes.

All of the neighborhood greenway streets will prioritize people walking and biking, and improve crossings of busy streets. We are responding to the requests for reduced cut through traffic with changes to the intersection of N 100th St and Greenwood Ave N and calming traffic along the route with speed humps where feasible.
