Green Lake Keep Moving Street
Hello Green Lake Keep Moving Street community,
Installation of the new, 2-way shared walking and biking path on W Green Lake Way N started this week on the south end of the street.
Our project schedule calls for completion of the new street design by early October -- our target date for opening the new path and reopening the street to people driving is October 1. Please be careful and follow signs and directions in the work zone and around heavy equipment.

We’ve received questions about what the refreshed design of W Green Lake Way N will look like. Please see below for the overall project map, a cross section, and then focus areas on the intersection designs.
This design is based on City standards and best practices for safety, as well as community feedback to reopen the street to people driving as soon as possible. The features include reducing the speed to 20MPH, a new tuff curb and flex posts to delineate a two-way path, adding new stop signs at N 63rd St and W Green Lake Way N, reconfigured transition for people coming or going to E Green Lake Way N, and improved markings at intersections and parking lot entrances.

After we complete the 2-way walking and biking path and reopen the street to 2-way vehicle traffic at reduced speeds, you’ll have a street for people of all ages and abilities to comfortably walk, roll, and bike on. We are on schedule for an early October, with a target date of October 1, reopening. Thank you for your patience.
