April 4, 2020, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by upgrading 26 miles of Neighborhood Greenways to Stay Healthy Streets throughout the city as a pilot program to allow for socially distanced transportation, recreation, and socialization.
Stay Healthy Streets build on the investments in the Neighborhood Greenway network by enhancing signage which closes the street to enable those on foot and bike to be the primary users of the street to allow for social distancing. As with Neighborhood Greenways, local access, deliveries, waste pickup and emergency vehicles are always allowed but drivers must yield to other users.
Working with the community, SDOT has identified the Greenwood Stay Healthy Street, along 1st Ave NW, as the most promising route to be made permanent in Northwest Seattle. They are looking for your input regarding any concerns with the current operation, what types of durable materials you prefer, and how to enhance the street to better reflect the local community.
