Rainier Valley Greenways has identified some top priorities to improve safety on Rainier Ave S. and to place value on Safety over Speeding ( We also have created a petition to gather support for these priorities at http://seattlegreenways.org/neighborhoods/rainier-valley/ please sign in support of a safer Rainier Ave!
- Safe Speeds of 25 MPH along Rainier Avenue South and 20 MPH engineered in our community centers of Columbia City, Hillman City, and Rainier Beach with enforcement.
- Safe & Dignified Crossings of Rainier Ave S where people driving stop for people walking, and people walking have enough to time cross before the traffic light changes.
- A Safe Place for People to Bike on Rainier Ave S.
SDOT will be discussing their new draft plans on how to improve Rainier Ave S. at two upcoming meetings- please come to the meetings and have your voice be heard!
