Updated: May 3, 2022

What's Happening Now?

The Little Brook Neighborhood Greenway will improve connections for people traveling to and from Little Brook Park to surrounding neighborhood schools (Cedar Park and Olympic Hill Elementary), parks, businesses, and the citywide transportation network. The new neighborhood greenway will expand affordable, active transportation options for people of all ages and abilities.

The Little Brook Neighborhood Greenway will  run along 32nd Ave NE from NE 143rd St down to NE 135th St

What to expect during construction

Typical construction hours are weekdays, 7 AM to 5 PM, with occasional weekend and night work. Other expected construction effects may include:

  • Temporary driveway impacts
  • Noise and vibration
  • Dust and debris
  • Construction staging and parking impacts near the work sites
  • Parking impacts
  • Crosswalk and sidewalk closures, and detours for people walking and biking
  • Roadway closures and detours for vehicle traffic
  • Changes in construction schedule due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e., weather, soil conditions, etc.)


We have completed the installation of a street mural on the intersection of NE 140th St and 32nd Ave NE St. The street mural was designed by Seattle artist, Romel Belleza (Ilocano, Tlingit & Dishchii Bikoh N’Dee) and was installed in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation and Lake City Collective to honor Native culture and welcome people to the Little Brook neighborhood.

Project Overview

The Little Brook neighborhood, in the Lake City community, is a populated and diverse neighborhood. The Little Brook Neighborhood Greenway will provide a safer connection for people walking and biking to nearby amenities. The planned neighborhood greenway connects residents to local schools, parks, and businesses as well as the citywide transportation network. The new neighborhood greenway will connect affordable, active transportation options for people of all ages and abilities.

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.

Neighborhood greenways can include:

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