Delridge and Highland Park Stay Healthy Street

Updated June 15, 2022

What's Happening Now?

Thank you to everyone who emailed, called, visited with us at the outdoor open house, or joined the recent community group meetings about the proposed permanent route of the Delridge-Highland Park Stay Healthy Street. 

The permanent route selection for the Delridge-Highland Park Stay Healthy Street will happen after the West Seattle Bridge reopens later this year. The current route will stay in its current, temporary form until then.  

This is so we can get additional traffic data and have further conversations with the community about the Stay Healthy Street and the existing Neighborhood Greenway, which first opened in 2017.  

We know the Delridge and Highland Park communities are passionate about this Stay Healthy Street. This summer, we’ll continue to attend events in the area to take input on the Delridge-Highland Park Stay Healthy Street.

About this project 

Stay Healthy Streets are an important tool for Seattleites to get outside, travel to grocery stores, pharmacies, and local businesses, and get exercise. They make it possible for people to walk, roll, and bike in the street while staying 6 feet apart during the COVID-19 pandemic. Installed as part of our emergency response to the pandemic in 2020, they also provide an opportunity for you to consider how they might improve your community long-term.   

How were streets selected? 

We considered existing Neighborhood Greenways, which have traffic calming like speed humps, improvements to make it easy to cross busy streets, and have gone through a community engagement process.  

What is next?

We are evaluating making your Stay Healthy Street a permanent community feature. We want your input on ways to create a space that reflects your values and needs. Permanent streets could be used for having outdoor potlucks and celebrations with your neighbors, art projects, sports, and traffic gardens along with travel and should support your community's values.
