With plans to widen 120th Avenue Northeast in the Wilburton neighborhood to relieve congestion, the city can incorporate design elements into new sidewalks, retaining walls and railings. Residents can provide input on the design elements they like in a survey.
As part of Bellevue's Enhanced Rights of Way and Urban Boulevards Program, the city will include features in the street's landscaping, lighting, railings, sidewalks and walls. The goal is to develop features that reflect the Wilburton area's logging history, echoing the iconic railroad trestle, while also highlighting the flowers and plants found in the nearby Bellevue Botanical Garden.
The survey presents design concepts, including retaining walls with a lattice and flowers, sidewalks with a grid pattern that echoes railroad ties and banners with a plant and tree motif.
