Project Update: 6th Ave NW Neighborhood Greenway

As soon as mid-June, construction will resume on the next stage of the 6th Ave NW Neighborhood Greenway! This work will include new speed humps, stop signs for side streets crossing the neighborhood greenway, and new signs and pavement markings to help people find their way.

Additional construction coming soon will improve the existing crossing signal for people walking, biking and rolling across NW Market St at the 5th/6th intersection: 

  • Install curb ramps  
  • Improve ability for people biking to cross NW Market St by installing bike push buttons and bike waiting zones separated from vehicle traffic with shielding islands  
  • Revise vehicle operation to right in / right out only for 6th Ave NW and 5th Ave NW through the extension of the existing median island and updating signs and pavement markings 
  • Mailboxes on the SE corner will be relocated to improve accessibility from the sidewalk 

This new greenway will connect West Woodland Elementary School to the existing neighborhood greenway on NW 58th St. View the project map below and visit the project webpage for more information.

What's a Neighborhood Greenway?

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

  • Easier crossings of busy streets with crosswalks, flashing beacons, or traffic signals
  • Speed humps to calm traffic
  • 20 mph speed limit signs
  • Stop signs for side streets crossing the neighborhood greenway
  • Signs and pavement markings to help people find their way


These projects were primarily funded by the 9-year Levy to Move Seattle, approved by voters in 2015. Funding also came from additional sources, such as the Neighborhood Street Fund program and Safe Routes to School grants.


The North Seattle Neighborhood Greenway & School Safety Project and associated Neighborhood Street Fund projects began construction in 2017 and were completed in early 2019:
