School Streets Come to Seattle!
This week, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) launched four six nine! pilot School Streets! At the request of each school, the street in front is closed to thru-traffic, including parent drop-offs, and open for people walking, rolling, and biking to school. School Streets reduce traffic during pick-up and drop-off times, and encourage families to walk or bike to school or park a few blocks away and walk.
