120th Avenue Enhancements Survey

As part of Bellevue's Enhanced Rights of Way and Urban Boulevards Program, the city plans to make improvements to 120th Avenue Northeast between Northeast Fourth and Eighth streets in the Wilburton neighborhood.

Following boulevard and gateway guiding policies, the city will incorporate design features into the street's landscaping, lighting, railings, sidewalks and walls. The goal is to develop features that reflect Wilburton's logging history, echoing the iconic railroad trestle, while also highlighting the flowers and plants found in the nearby Bellevue Botanical Garden.

Below, you will find three design concepts to enhance 120th Avenue:

  1. For a retaining wall and guardrail, the trestle is interpreted as a lattice for vines and screening;
  2. Sidewalks could feature a grid pattern that echoes railroad ties and wooden bridges at Kelsey Creek Farm Park; and
  3. Banners for the lampposts could feature a plant and tree motif evocative of the Botanical Garden for possible banners. 

Does any design reflect the neighborhood character better than another? Which design do you prefer? (For details for each concept, click on the image or title below it.)
