Neighborhood Greenways are low-speed, low-volume, shared-space streets that create high-comfort walking and bicycling connections. To see which streets are designated as Neighborhood Greenways, check out the Transportation Plan. In order to create a connected network, the City is prioritizing the design and installation of Neighborhood Greenways recommended in the Priority Bicycle Facilities Network. For 2021, several Neighborhood Greenways are in the works. To design and install Neighborhood Greenways, the City follows the Staff-Led Traffic Calming/Neighborhood Greenways Process. 

Project Map:

This project is on E. 7th Street, from N. Union Street to the 45/46 Bypass.
