The above map shows the design area beginning at Northeast 132nd Street and continuing up to the city limits.
Update (April 17, 2017) -- The team of engineers and landscape architects currently re-designing 100th Avenue Northeast in the Juanita neighborhood will unveil its broad concept (PDF - 7.6mb) at an April 25 open house. The open house begins at 5 p.m. at the Juanita Community Church (10007 N.E. 132nd St.). The concept recommends 15 feet for separated sidewalks and sidewalk-level bike lanes along both sides of most of the corridor. Project Engineer Laura Drake said the design process will continue through 2017. Residents can also participate in the open house through a web-based system that asks for their preferences on a range of features, such as street lighting, sidewalks and bicycle lanes and the configuration of the corridor's intersections.

100th Avenue Corridor Study

Neighborhood Services Coordinator
It’s hard to get around …
Regardless of whether you travel 100th Avenue Northeast by car, by foot or by bike, you have faced challenges, such as:
• Lack of sidewalks and bicycle lanes
• Limited visibility due to lack of streetlights
• Excessive congestion during peak travel periods
• Inefficient intersections
• Turning into and out of driveways near stop lights
The City of Kirkland is designing improvements for these challenges on 100th Avenue Northeast corridor between Northeast 132nd and Northeast 145th streets.
This graph shows the planned schedule for the design process of 100th Avenue Northeast. A text-only version of the timeline is also available.
Opportunities for improvement
The City has identified opportunities to improve the overall corridor performance and safety for all modes of travel. Future enhancements that could be implemented along the corridor, include:
• Improving street lighting
• Adding sidewalks and buffered bike lanes within the existing street
• Upgrading traffic signals at several key intersections to reduce delays, such as Northeast 132nd Street and Simonds Road Northeast
• Extending the current two-way left turn lane from Northeast 139th Street to Northeast 145th Street
• Protecting fish habitat by replacing or modifying the Juanita Creek culvert near Simonds Road Northeast
During the design of this project the project team will consider these types of enhancements along with other options as ways to improve the corridor.
We are creating a safe corridor with your help!
The City is excited to work with the community to improve 100th Avenue Northeast. Your suggestions and input are vital to developing a functional and effective corridor design.
The outreach process will rely heavily on community input throughout the project. The community can offer its input through in-person and online open houses and other events. For updates and more information, check back here or sign-up to receive email updates.
The 100th Avenue Northeast Study is available to review under important information on the sidebar of this webpage. The City's Public Works staff hired the consulting firm of Concord Engineering to perform a study of the 100th Avenue Northeast Corridor. The Study analyzed safety improvements for pedestrians, general travel lane configurations, and associated environmental issues between Northeast 132nd and Northeast 145th Streets. Other considerations will include traffic flow, and future anticipated growth. The final product from the Study will be used as the basis for future grant funding opportunities.
