Earlier this year we talked about Seattle’s ‘Stay Healthy Streets’. And we’re excited to say that 4 more miles of streets have been added to this super cool project. So now more Seattleites can safely get outside.

If you haven’t heard of the ‘Stay Healthy Streets’ that’s okay. They are an initiative to give Seattleites room to safely get outdoors during the COVID-19 pandemic. And the selected streets were chosen in areas where more outdoor space was needed. Which is pretty dang cool.

But what’s even cooler is that 20 miles of these streets will be permanently closed to car traffic. And while this seems a little crazy, these areas have been carefully selected. Not to mention necessary vehicles like emergency services and delivery vehicles will be allowed through.

So if you’d like to see the new additions you can click here. Or just head directly to the areas. Which include the Cedar Park Neighborhood Greenway, the Wallingford Neighborhood Greenway, Bell Street between 1st and 5th avenues, and an extension of the Beacon Hill Stay Healthy Street.
