Seattle Children’s hosting NE Seattle Livable Streets Open House Saturday

As part of Seattle Children’s expansion in NE Seattle, the medical center is investing $4 million in transportation projects in the neighborhood. And livable, safe streets is central to their plan, which means modern family-friendly biking and walking facilities.

One big project to come from the investment is a neighborhood greenway on 39th Ave NE from the Burke-Gilman Trail to NE 75th St. They will also install a two-way cycle track along their campus frontage on Sand Point Way.

Learn more about these and other planned projects at their Livable Streets Open House Saturday from 10 – 2 p.m. on UW campus.
