Walk Zone boundaries and Walk Route maps

School Walk Zone/Routes

Coordinating Walk Zones and Walk Routes is beneficial in student routing and planning efforts. We use our bus routing and mapping software tools to measure the distance from a point in front of the students home addresses to a point at the entrance to the school. Any location within a walking distance of 1 mile from the school is within the Walk Zone.

There are some exceptions in the Edmonds School District. These areas excluded from the Walk Zone are within a 1 mile walking distance of the school but students would have to deal with a hazardous walking condition. For example:

  • Crossing multiple lanes of fast moving traffic at an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing
  • Crossing major highways like Highway-99 or a freeway interchange
  • Walking on the roadway with no sidewalk or shoulder

Where students must cross the street, the chosen Walk Route should seek to limit the number of crossings in a way that encourages students to cross streets in groups. In addition, it should seek those routes that provide the greatest physical separation between walking children and traffic, expose children to the lowest speeds and volumes of moving vehicles, and have zero rail crossings.

As with any plan, once a school Walk Route plan is developed and distributed, it must be routinely updated as conditions change. Edmonds School District is currently undertaking a review of the existing Walk Zones and Walk Route maps and will update the maps on this web site as the process is completed.
