120th Avenue Northeast Widening Stage 3: NE 12th St to NE 16th St
120th Avenue NE Widening Stage 3 will widen the existing roadway to five lanes with bike lanes, from NE 12th Street to Northup Way. The 120th Avenue Northeast projects will create a north-south arterial to increase connectivity between downtown, the Bel-Red corridor and the Overlake area. Once completed, these improvements are expected to provide congestion relief at key intersections and enhance travel times for cars, transit, freight, pedestrians and bikes.
In March 2010 / November 2010, the city held a public a Mobility & Infrastructure Initiative (M&II) open house for Bel-Red and Wilburton Connections. This project was also displayed at the Spring Forward Expo 2013. Attendees made suggestions and comments about improvements along the corridor. Public input also helped to establish Stage 2 of 120th Avenue Northeast as an important element in this corridor’s development.
Project is currently in design and will begin construction in 2015.
