Stay Healthy Streets

To support people biking, scooting and walking for travel and fun, we're converting some existing, neighborhood greenways (calm residential streets) into Stay Healthy Streets. Stay Healthy Streets are closed to vehicles - but not residents or deliveries - 24 hours a day, seven days a week (until further notice). This decreased vehicle traffic makes these streets a safer place for you to make trips and explore neighborhoods by biking, scooting and walking.

It is located on 21st Ave SW from the southern edge of Puget Park and eventually ends up on 17th Ave SW, with a eastbound segment to Highland Park along SW Trenton St

Want to enjoy the benefits of Stay Healthy Streets on your block? Read our guidelines and then request a Stay Healthy Block permit.

You may soon see residential streets around schools turned into Stay Healthy Blocks to create more space for children into and out of schools.

Remember, when biking on sidewalks and crosswalks, yield to people walking and rolling. Scooting on sidewalks is prohibited.

Mini grants available for organizing Safe Routes to School

As schools reopen with staggered start and end times, you will see parents and children walking, biking and rolling to and from school. Parents and community organizations: did you know there are resources available to organize or support safer routes to school?
