Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, neighbors and customers. On streets with low car volumes and speeds a greenway can: Improve safety Help people cross busy streets Discourage cut-thru traffic Protect the residential character of our neighborhoods Keep speeds low Get people to where they want to go like parks, schools, shops and restaurants Neighborhood greenways are not car free zones, do not add bike lanes and there are minimal if any on-street parking impacts. In March, SDOT hosted a public meeting and gathered valuable input on building a north-south neighborhood greenway in Ballard from Salmon Bay to Soundview Playfield. From our evaluation and the input received, we recommend a greenway along 17th Avenue NW from NW 90th Street to Russell Avenue NW and along NW Dock Place between Russell Avenue NW and Ballard Avenue NW. The recommendations (shown on map below) include traffic calming and access and crossing improvements. Not shown, but also included are stop signs facing east and west on residential streets, wayfinding signs, sharrows, reduced speed limit signs from 25 MPH to 20 MPH and pavement and sidewalk repairs.
