Get Ready! 11 More Miles of Stay Healthy Streets Coming Your Way

We’re opening 11 more miles of Stay Healthy Streets to allow for safe social distancing while walking, rolling, running, skating, and biking!  

Lake City, Aurora Licton Springs, Ballard, and Delridge/Highland Park communities will be able to access essential services, recreate, and walk their dogs near their homes while protecting the neighbors by keeping 6 feet apart.

Stay Healthy Streets are in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until further notice. Lake City will be in place today, May 1, and the rest early next week.

We’re also extending the Central District route to include 22nd Ave E to E Olive St creating a total of 20 miles of Stay Healthy Streets. Stay Healthy Streets builds off the 196 miles of Seattle’s bike facilities and trails and helps people #KeepItMoving.

Keep it Moving Guidance: 

  • Stay Home. If you need to leave the house, visit your neighborhood park. 
  • Keep it Moving. Keep walking, running, or biking. That means no picnics, no BBQs, no sports, no gatherings at our parks. 
  • Visit parks, greenways and farmers markets at off peak hours 
  • If you see a crowd, go somewhere else 

We’re also seeking volunteers to confirm road closure signs remain in place, to conduct pedestrian and bicycling counts, take photos and share vignettes. Those interested in volunteering can email NorthSeattleGreenway@Seattle.gov. The counts will be used to monitor the success of Stay Healthy Streets, along with resident feedback, and any traffic impacts where vehicles are detoured.
