West Seattle - High Point Stay Healthy Street

What's Happening Now?

Art in High Point - Your salmon designs on SW Graham St and 31st Ave SW

Earlier this summer, a local artist created salmon drawings that High Point community members filled in with their own designs. This fall, we'll install the salmon designs on High Point streets!

Each salmon will be about 6 feet long and they will “leap” along SW Graham St and 31st Ave SW. The salmon will be in the middle of the street, so people can still drive on the them and they won’t be covered by parked vehicles.

Please expect construction vehicles, noise, and activity in the area in coming weeks. During the work, we'll need to temporarily restrict parking and put short detours in place. Read the full construction notice

Thank you, High Point community, for your involvement in this project.

Next steps on High Point Healthy Street

We are evaluating options for the High Point Healthy Street and appreciate your feedback on ways to create a space that reflects your community values and needs. We'd love to hear from you by calling (206) 727-3565 or emailing WestSeattleStayHealthyStreet@seattle.gov.

About this project 

We introduced Healthy Streets during the pandemic in 2020 as a way for Seattleites to get outside safely and stay active in local neighborhoods throughout the city. Healthy Streets are open for people walking, rolling, biking, and playing, and closed to pass-through traffic. 

We’re updating our Healthy Streets across Seattle based on the trends we’ve seen in terms of community use and public feedback. For the Delridge-Highland Park Healthy Street, we will conduct more outreach and collect more traffic and speed data to determine next steps.
