Highland Park Elementary Neighborhood Greenway

Updated January 7, 2022

What's Happening Now?

Thank you for taking the time to tell us what you think about walking and biking around Highland Park Elementary School. We've reviewed your feedback and incorporated your voice into the most promising route selection. During 2020-2021, we have completed several sections of greenways and will finish construction of the final section by 2023. 

Project Overview

The Highland Park Elementary Neighborhood Greenway will improve connections between the school and the surrounding neighborhood including parks, businesses, and the citywide transportation network. The new neighborhood greenway will expand 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:

  • 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
