What We're Doing
NE Seattle Greenways is a group of neighbors like you who are working to make their streets safer and more comfortable for everybody.
We work on projects in Roosevelt, Ravenna, Bryant, Laurelhurst, Windermere, Wedgwood, View Ridge, and Sand Point.
Our current priority is on safe I-5 Crossings. The interstate 5 divides the neighborhoods of District 4 and prevents people from walking and biking east to west. Northeast Seattle Greenways wants to solve this by creating safer sidewalks, bike lanes, and curb ramps on key crossings and explore the creation of a new crossing or lid. However, we can use your help to achieve this!
Do you want to create dignified walk/bike crossings of I-5? Get involved with our top 2016 priority for District 4!

- We implemented temporary crossing improvements at 40th Ave NE crossing of the Burke Gilman Trail.
- We got implemented the second neighborhood greenway in Seattle on 39th Ave NE.
- Crowd sourced mapping: We scouted and identified a crowd-sourced map of important walking and biking routes (see map below – which is now out of date).
