Ashworth Ave N Neighborhood Greenway

Updated: June 24, 2024

What's Happening Now?

We're completing safety projects near you!

Pedestrians cross Meridian Ave N at N 120th St where new curb ramps and flashing beacons were installed

We are constructing several projects in your neighborhood to make walking and biking safer and more comfortable near James Baldwin Elementary and Ingraham High School.

Neighborhood Greenway Project Construction is currently underway with completion planned in 2025. Installation of new curb ramps and concrete curbs was completed at Meridian Ave N & N 120th St in June 2024. This location received newly marked crosswalks and Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons. We also made minor street repairs to the SB lane of Meridian Ave N.

New pedestrian lighting along the trail north of N 120th St is anticipated to be installed June to October 2024.

Completion of the natural drainage work by Seattle Public Utilities (and associated roadway work) has been delayed until 2025, so we will be dividing SDOT work into two phases of construction. All work west/north of Meridian Ave N & N 120th St is still expected to be completed in 2024, while pavement markings and some other project completion on N 120th St east of Meridian Ave N and on Corliss Ave N will be completed in 2025.

Project Overview

The Ashworth Ave N Neighborhood Greenway connects residents to local schools, parks, and businesses as well as the citywide transportation network. The new neighborhood greenway will bring affordable, active transportation options for people of all ages and abilities. We are constructing several projects in your neighborhood. These projects will improve the network connection and make walking and biking safer near James Baldwin Elementary (formerly Northgate Elementary School) and Ingraham High School. Below is a list of completed and upcoming projects in your neighborhood, along with their estimated start dates for construction.

What's a Neighborhood Greenway?

Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, and neighbors. We make people walking and biking the priority.

Child biking

Neighborhood greenways can include:

  • easier crossings of busy streets with crosswalks, flashing beacons, or traffic signals
  • speed humps to calm traffic
  • stop signs for side streets crossing the neighborhood greenway
  • signs and pavement markings to help people find their way
