Georgetown Healthy Street

Updated December 1, 2023

What's Happening Now?

We are excited to announce that the permanent Georgetown Healthy Street will be installed as soon as summer 2024! This means replacing the temporary signs with permanent signs supported by either concrete sign bases or planters. In addition, we have updated our design for the Georgetown Healthy Street, and are adding additional safety enhancements along the route. To explore the updated designs, see the “Georgetown Healthy Street Design” section below.

Upgraded Temporary Sign Bases

This winter, we'll be upgrading the temporary sign bases at key intersections along the Georgetown Healthy Street to more durable concrete cylinders. The existing temporary signage has not been durable enough to withstand winter traffic conditions and as a result, our crews were overwhelmed last year with numerous daily requests to repair and replace signage all over the city. These temporary sign bases will be replaced when permanent planter boxes and concrete sign bases are installed.

In addition, starting in spring 2024 we will be accepting planter requests for the Georgetown Healthy Street! Once our sign-up form opens, it will be posted on this webpage. Sign up for our email updates to be notified when it becomes available and check this webpage in the spring to fill out the form. For permanent Healthy Street locations, neighbors can elect to replace the standard concrete sign base with planters. SDOT can install planters at Healthy Street intersections based on the requests we receive from neighbors. Neighbors who request planters are responsible for maintaining the planter after installation. For more information about adopting planters and planter maintenance, visit Healthy Street Planters

Design Elements

We have updated our design for the permanent Georgetown Healthy Street. Along with installing typical Healthy Street features on Flora Ave S, we will also be installing speed humps, pavement markings, and wayfinding signs along the entire Healthy Street for people walking, biking, and rolling. We will be evaluating the possibility of installing Healthy Street intersection features on Carleton Ave S, since Carleton is wider than a typical neighborhood street. See the planned improvements below.
