Delridge and Highland Park Healthy Street

Updated April 3, 2024

What's Happening Now?

We are continuing to conduct outreach and an evaluation based on community use trends and public feedback to determine if the Delridge and Highland Park Healthy Street should become permanent. We expect to conclude this process by the end of the summer and announce a decision before the end of the year. Please sign up for email updates to be notified when a decision is announced.  

Upgraded Temporary Sign Bases

Recently, we upgraded the temporary sign bases at key intersections along the Delridge and Highland Park 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 around the city. These temporary sign bases will be upgraded to permanent signage if the Healthy Street becomes permanent, or removed if this Healthy Street is returned to a Neighborhood Greenway.

About this project 

We introduced Healthy Streets during the pandemic in 2020 as a way for Seattleites to get outside safely and stay active in local neighborhoods throughout the city. Healthy Streets are open for people walking, rolling, biking, and playing, and closed to pass-through traffic. 

We’re updating our Healthy Streets across Seattle based on the trends we’ve seen in terms of community use and public feedback. Our next steps will be:

  • Make some locations permanent Healthy Streets
  • Return some locations to neighborhood greenways, which they were prior to the pandemic
  • Further review some Healthy Streets and conduct more outreach to determine next steps.
  • These locations will remain Healthy Streets until further notice.  

With the West Seattle Bridge reopened, we’re collecting new traffic data and having further conversations with the community about this Healthy Street and the existing Neighborhood Greenway, which first opened in 2017.
