What We've Done

University District Greenways has contributed to the following successes:

  • We were instrumental in creating the 12th Ave neighborhood greenway.
  • Dividing Green Line 3

  • We did significant work to change what was planned to just be a routine repaving of Roosevelt Way NE into a true complete streets project that makes improvements for people walking and biking.
  • Dividing Green Line 3

  • 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We scouted and identified a crowd-sourced map of important walking and biking routes (see map below – which is now out of date).
