Safe Routes to School: Wing Luke Elementary

Updated May 30, 2024

What's Happening Now?

We are excited to announce that the extension of the Wing Luke Elementary Neighborhood Greenway northward and Kenyon Way S Sidewalk project are complete!

The Wing Luke Elementary Neighborhood Greenway made improvements to increase safety for walking and biking in the neighborhood at

  1. S Holly Park Dr from S Myrtle Pl to 40th Ave S,
  2. 39th Ave S from S Holly Park Dr to S Kenyon St,
  3. 40th Ave S between S Holly Park Dr and S Holden St, and
  4. S Holden St between 40th Ave S and 39th Ave S.

Project Overview

The Neighborhood Greenway extension was planned in coordination with the earlier sidewalk project already funded through the Safe Routes to School and Urban Trails and Bikeways programs and will further enhance safe travel to Wing Luke Elementary for children and families and make it easier to walk and bike in the neighborhood. Safe Routes to School is a national movement to make it easier and safer for students to walk and bike to school.

We prioritized this location to fill a gap in the sidewalk and urban trail network, enabling kids and families to walk safely to Wing Luke Elementary School. Project elements completed include:

  • a new sidewalk
  • a midblock raised crosswalk on S Kenyon St, and
  • a new connection to Chief Sealth Trail

Near Wing Luke Elementary, a new sidewalk and curb ramp are complete.
