If you’re interested in traffic safety improvements and potential routes for a neighborhood greenway connecting the Montlake and Madison Valley neighborhoods, don’t miss an important open house this Saturday, February 18. The meeting takes place at the Bush School Community Room from 10:30 AM to noon, 3400 E Harrison St, Seattle WA 98112.
Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and the Department of Neighborhoods (DON) through the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund are partnering with the Arboretum Neighbors for Safe Streets and Madison Valley Greenways neighborhood groups to study traffic safety improvements and routes for a neighborhood greenway connecting the Montlake and Madison Valley neighborhoods. Join us at our second open house to share you ideas for this route on Saturday, February 18th. We are eager to hear more from our fellow neighbors who live, work, shop and play along these streets.
The Seattle Bicycle Master Plan recommends a neighborhood greenway along the Lake Washington Loop in the vicinity of 26th Ave E and 28th Ave E, between East Harrison and Boyer Ave E. We studied potential neighborhood greenway routes, identifying traffic safety improvements and developing a conceptual design. This is a neighborhood-led study.
This is the second of two meetings on the neighborhood greenway. The first meeting shared traffic data and helped us understand where people want to walk and bike and barriers to doing so. At this meeting we will share the results of technical analysis and public comment and the most promising route with recommended safety improvements, including the intersection of 26th Avenue East and Boyer Avenue East.
